There is some good news out there—and some people doing great things. 18-year-old Antonio Gwynn, Jr. saw the damage from rioting and protests in his hometown on the news. That was enough for him. He took a broom, bought some trash bags, and headed out to start cleaning up—by himself. Nobody had to tell him he should do it, he just knew the right thing to do. Antonio started at 2:00 AM and didn’t stop for 10 hours! He knew that people in his community needed to get to work and the street was covered with glass and garbage.
Well, Antonio’s good deed didn’t go unnoticed. A man named Matt Block saw what Antonio did and decided to do something really special for him—he gave him a car! Wow. Then a local businessman heard about that and gave a year of free auto insurance. That’s not all. Antonio couldn’t believe it when Medaille College in Buffalo heard his story and offered him a full scholarship—he plans to start in the fall. Isn’t that great?
Being a good neighbor can be contagious. I hope more people will read this and try it. When the Samaritan stopped to help an injured man on the roadside with his own money and time, Jesus told us to “Go and do likewise.”
