A Beautiful Thing To See On A Rainy Day

In case you're feeling gloomy on this rainy day, maybe you've got candy hangover, maybe the aftermath of last night's fun has let you down, perhaps Thanksgiving vacation feels too far away (I could go on and on, but I'll stop there), if you need a lift, I have something to share with you.

Watch this beautiful act of compassion and heroism.

A Buffalo, New York bus driver was crossing a bridge when he noticed a woman standing outside the overpass railing. Darnell Barton, a father of two, stopped the loaded bus, called his dispatcher for help, then went to help the woman who was staring at the traffic below her. Barton put his arm around the woman and asked her if she wanted to come back over the rail. She said, "yeah."

Watch as Barton helps her across the rail and sits down with her to talk. Help came soon after.
