With all the strife in all our world one can easily wonder where good news and American values may be.   Right here.  Solid evidence that tragedy and titillating melodrama may be the order of the day in the media, but good people doing great things just because they can will always be the core of this country.  Unseen, unheralded, and uncaring that that may be so. Stepping up in small and large ways to be all about what this country was founded for.  Making the Thresher Memorial Project a true acknowledgement that those guys and their families deserve these symbols of what we may hold dear.
