"Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart."
Anne Frank wrote that, not me. I don't think I believe it, at least, watching the way a depraved lunatic fringe is taking advantage of a mother and father's refusal to face reality in order to indulge its sick flesh fetish is strong evidence to the contrary.
All the same, articles like these allow me to remember that there are generous people in this country who truly do try to help one another and make sacrifices for the greater good. This can be hard to remember given the spiritually bereft, materialistic culture being promoted by the current administration, but Americans can still be capable of such gestures.
