Just Wow

This show left me in tears last night. If you have not seen Random 1 yet, you don't know what you're missing. Two guys, with the help of three others, go out and help random people.

Last night (and the episode repeats Wed, Thu and Sat) they got a prosthetic leg for a homeless man (legs run about $22,000). Bruce had been without his leg since a child, when it was run over by a riding lawnmower. The prosthesis that he had was old and sticky. It prevented him from being able to work in his field (construction) and he was homeless. Now, Bruce has a new leg and is on the road to a construction job.

In a world full of hate and greed, Random 1 reminds us that there are good people in the world. There are still those who put others first and see the value in each person, no matter what their life circumstance. America needs more people like John and Andre.
