This week's feel good story comes to us from a site my wife brought to my attention called tanksgoodnews.com.

As I do every week, I ask you, “what have you done today to make your life a better life?, what have you done today to make the world a better place?” The world is a better place if we are better people, and that begins with each of us leading a better life.
