This is in direct defiance to Kicky and Og's claim that human kind is a virus with shoes on - or something like that. I know of encouraging wonderful people who make me feel happy to be part of the human race.

I'll start with - Ted Ginn, Sr.
Quote:
Ted Ginn Sr. just might be the most unlikely head of a high school in the country.

A local football coach, he never went to college and doesn't have any teaching or administrative credentials. Yet the school he conceived and runs, the Ginn Academy, is one of the most successful public schools in Cleveland.

Oh lordy, I have sooooo many nominations to put here, and hopefully I'll get to a lot of them. This is a great thread Mismi....thank you.

I'll start with some of the unsung heroes who do acts of selfless random kindness. One such soul is Kaziah Hancock who paints wonderful portraits of fallen soldiers and sends them to their families and refuses to accept a dime in return:

Patrick Henry Hughes was born blind and disabled to the point that he has never walked. When very young he taught himself to play piano and trumpet by ear. His father, Patrick John, pushes his wheelchair when young Patrick participates in the Louisville marching band.

Enrique Morones saves lives by offering food and water to migrant workers making the dangerous border crossing. A man of faith, he is motivated by the words of Jesus...

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
