Show someone an act of kindness today

Recently, a Ruston resident shared the story of a Good Samaritan who found his life savings and returned them to the bank — rather than making off with them.
A few months ago, a couple of Good Samaritans rescued a pair of toddlers who were waddling down a busy highway and brought them home to their parents.

“I looked up and I was coming in on them fast,” Puckett said about the day he was on his way to class at Louisiana Tech University and dropped his cell phone auxiliary extension cord between the front seats of his car.
The near miss led to the formation of ConnectOne, a consumer electronics accessories company that will launch a newly developed, easy-to-use extension cable on Amazon.com on Black Friday.
