Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (12)


Quote of the day:
Don't wait for other people to be loving, giving, compassionate, grateful, forgiving, generous, or friendly... lead the way. 
-Steve Maraboli

Australian, James Harrison has donated blood every week for 60 years -despite being averse to needles, helping to save the lives of about 2 million babies in the process. He was discovered to have an unusual antibody in his blood, and in 1960 worked with doctors to create an injection using the antibodies, and prevents women with rhesus-negative blood from developing RhD antibodies during pregnancy.

A golden retriever service dog named Figo, saved his blind owner, 62 yr old Audrey Stone after putting himself in harm's way by taking the majority of the impact from a mini school bus-and afterwards refused to leave her side at the accident scene. Audrey Stone, who is in stable condition suffered 3 broken ribs, a broken ankle and elbow. She said of her dog while doctors monitored her 'He protects me, loves me, and vice versa'.

  15. I ran across the first two stories but the last one is unknown to me...until now! James Harrison is an unsung hero. I wish there were more stories like that in the media, which always sensationalizes the bad news. And the dog...sigh...what a heartwarming tale. <3
