Open Thread: A Wonderful Story
May 19, 2018

Making the rounds: A Texas middle school asked for 50 volunteers to act as mentors for a "Breakfast with Dad" event.

The school is majority low-income and the staff were concerned a number of students would not have a father figure present.

They asked for 50 volunteers and got 600.

There are good things in this world.
