POSITRACTION: How often do folks "return to build ramp"?



Man Helps Amputee Up the Stairs, Then Returns to Build Ramp
    Uplift    Inspiring
by McKinley Corbley - Apr 7, 2017

*** begin quote ***

Jennifer Austin had long awaited the day that her husband would finally return from the hospital – but after weeks of time spent in the ICU, Don Austin arrived home on Friday only to find a frustrating obstacle standing in his way: the stairs to his front door.

Due to a host of health issues, Don had had his leg amputated below the knee. Though he had crutches handy, he still wasn’t strong enough to make it up the stairs to their house in Creston, Florida.

“There was no way I could get him up [the stairs] with the wheelchair,” said Jennifer. “There became a critical point where he ended up down on the concrete steps, and even with his mother’s help, there was not enough strength to lift him up.”

*** end quote ***

This is a great story for the moral lesson. How often do I not even see the original need? Let alone do I come back with an “army” to really fix the problem!

Very impressive!

I hope there’s a flow of blessings for that good man.

Hope I can do this sometime, any time, or even all the time.

Ray was an extremely intelligent man who although enjoying his 'retirement' still tutored friends and former colleagues in multiple subjects ranging from Algebra to Calculus.

Ray loved to laugh and enjoyed playing numerous practical jokes on his family and friends. He was a master of Photoshop and no one was safe from his antics. He enjoyed movies, oh so many movies, from history to horror movies, bowling, but mostly traveling.

JOBIT: Fitzgerald, Jim [MC1972] on 2017-04Apr-17



Jim Fitzgerald, longtime AP writer and editor, dies at 66
By The Associated Press April 17, 2017 8:21 pm

*** begin quote ***

NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Fitzgerald, a longtime Associated Press writer and editor who helped shape the news service’s coverage of stories from terror attacks to the evolving landscape of aging, died Monday. He was 66.

Fitzgerald, who worked for the AP for 45 years before retiring in December, had been fighting leukemia for more than a year and a half. He died at a New York hospital, said his wife, Ellen Nimmons, a manager at AP’s headquarters.

During decades of covering New York City’s northern suburbs and editing local and national stories, Fitzgerald was known for handling some of the top news of the day with a can-do demeanor, professionalism, fairness and a gentlemanly grace. His trademark answer to an everyday “How are you?”: “Never better.”

*** and ***

Fitzgerald began working for the AP in part-time and temporary jobs as a Manhattan College student in 1971, then joined the news cooperative full time in New York in 1973, writing stories for radio and TV use. He moved on to what was then called the General Desk, editing stories for national and international distribution and helping supervise coverage of major news — and meeting Nimmons.

In Response To JOBIT: Cashman, Jerry [MC1953 RIP] on 2017-04Apr-09
Submitted on 2017/04/18 at 3:59 pm

I’m so sad to hear of the passing of Dr. Jerry Cashman. When I was at Manhattan in the late 60’s, the Jasper Journal office on the top floor of Thomas Hall was my “clubhouse”. I was there every day between classes, just a couple of doors away from the Dean of Men’s office. So I saw Dr. Cashman and his assistant Mrs. Williamson just about every day, and they were two of the nicest people you could ever meet. They were never too busy to help you out or just chat. He was a good man. I’ll miss him.

*** begin quote ***

Even by the standards of the Greatest Generation, the life of Derryman Harry Callan has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Now 93 and living in north Dublin, Callan first went to sea at the tender age of 16.  Conscription was never introduced to Northern Ireland during the Second World War, but young Harry joined the Royal Navy anyway.

Joining HM Armed Forces at such a perilous time in British history was never going to be risk-free and Callan’s ship was captured.

When I read these stories, I want cry and yell.

‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: [screaming at the top of his lungs] “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!” -- the character Howard Beale played by Peter Finch in the movie Network (1976)
