Tugging at heartstrings

I’d like to share this story, Shelter in the Rain. In case you’re not up on the Capital Metro news here in Austin, there is a particular bus stop by the Dell Children’s Medical Center that doesn’t have any kind of official shelter available for those waiting. These two men in the article went out this morning (in the pouring rain) to erect a makeshift shelter for those that have to wait at that stop.

Here’s a video link, which I hope works.

On a day with many planned memorials that can sometimes seem like they’re trying to elicit tears, this story, in my eyes…well…I like it.

  1. My nose is stinging and I’m blinking back the tears. Yep, this was a good one! They did a great thing.

  2. JSS – I’m glad someone felt the same way about it. After I posted I thought, “Am I just being too sensitive?”
