He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother

Erica has a post talking about how during times of tragedy, we as the human race always come together and help each other out when the help is really needed the most.



Ten-year-old Kaleigh Swift, left, and her friend Olivia Reynolds describe how they were rescued from the school bus stuck on the Interstate 35W bridge that collapsed on Wednesday over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis



Special Deputy Eric Hurman makes his way up the bank of the Mississippi River with his diving equipment as the search continues for victims...



Members of Medicine Lake Fire and Rescue bring up a rescue craft...



A Red Cross volunteer, left, escorts two unidentified people as they leave a support center where family members seeking information on missing loved ones from the bridge collapse...



A man comforts an unidentified victim injured in the collapse...



People surround an injured woman on the sidewalk along West River Parkway...




Of course, any other time and us members of the human race seem to be a bunch of fuckheads:

Damn, man. That's one depressing post.

curmudgeon said...

Yeah, it just irritates me that so many people only show their good side when they absolutely have to.

The rest of the time, even though some folks think people are "inherently good inside", so many people can be such selfish, greedy assholes sometimes.

Most of the trouble in my life has involved other people. I see your point.

OK, so we do have some stuff we need to work on.

Indeed we do.
