Secret Santas surprise Detroiters with cash
DETROIT -- Several police cars roared up to the Detroit bus stop, with sirens flashing, and slammed on their brakes.
The four people waiting for the bus quickly sat up straight at attention as cops flooded their little enclosure.
Out stepped the police chief from one of the unmarked black cars.
To make things even crazier, he started handing out $100 bills to the people waiting.
A woman started to cry. A man started gushing. An elderly woman couldn't believe her eyes and actually asked the city's police chief whether the money was counterfeit.
Standing behind him, beaming, was the woman who provided the money. For five years now, she and her husband, after living well-to-do lives, have given out $100 bills to about 100 random people on the street as a Christmas present. All they ask in exchange is that the recipients do something nice for someone else.......
"It was a home run," said Mrs. Santa. "We gave out more money today than ever before. When you pull over a bus with 50 people in it, and hear the personal stories from people who say their kids would not have had a Christmas without us showing up, the energy you get from it is amazing."
"The further we (as the human race) grow away from the natural world, the quieter the natural world becomes and the more pathological we become as a culture."........Bernie Krause
The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington

Love it! If anyone deserves a break, it's Detroiters!
Merry Christmas to everyone in Detroit! May you feel warmth and love.Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

That's great! I hope no one robs them of the money before they get home.
