The Candy Bomber

This is a happy story I found on PBS. I think it fits in with the season. During the Berlin Airlift of 1948 an American Air Force pilot was on a sweet mission. He dropped little handkerchief parachutes with candy for the children of West Berlin. Here is a little video clip of him from PBS via You Tube:

Tom Brokaw did a video with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir about The Candy Bomber. Here it is:

I think it fits with the holiday season no matter what religion or non-religion we are. It is nice to think about goodness in the world. It does exist. What do you think? I think I would like to focus on the goodness in the world leading up to Hanukkah and the Christmas season.

    I just read about this man a couple of weeks ago. What a compassionate and giving heart he had. He brought so much joy to those children, at a time when they needed it so desperately. It’s the little things that make the greatest impact.
