My day started on the right foot today thanks to Memphis television station WREG, which showed its latest PASS IT ON segment on the early morning news. Reporter Richard Ransom stood on the side of the road with a handmade Volunteer to Pass It On sign. Within two minutes a lady stopped and told Ransom that she had just left an auto repair shop where a family had their car towed in for repairs and had to leave by foot because they could not pay the bill. The reporter called the shop manager, who went down the street and brought the father, mother and teenage daughter back to shop. The reporter took the volunteer back to the shop where she gave the $300 that Ransom had given her to the family to pay their repair bill. Hugs and tears all around.
A great story and a good lesson for all of us in these times. Thanks WREG!
