A Touch of Nice

You might have seen this video on Yahoo this morning. At a time of national sadness surrounding the events in Tucson last Saturday, it's a reminder of the basic goodness of people.

Elizabeth Hughes, an eight-year-old, was invited to sing the national anthem at a hockey game on Friday night. Partway through her performance, the microphone failed. Once the crowd shhh'd the stupid woman who laughed, they came to Elizabeth's rescue.

A very nice moment.

That's the spirit!

PS I'll drop by later today (barring opossums) :grin:

What a heartwarming clip!
Bet that little girl will never forget the audience's support.

Maria: I'm never going to tell you anything again!!!

For anyone wondering what's going on, I opened my door Monday night, looking for Bob the Cat to come in because it was sooooo cold out. There on my doorstep was a young possum, shivering (they don't have much hair).

I went and got a box and filled it with newpaper shavings and old bathtowels and set it on the porch. The little possum was playing dead so I got a shovel and scooped him up and put him in the box.

I made the mistake of telling Maria.
