Thanksgiving is my favourite vacation of the yr. We are going to discover a strategy to take pleasure in it even throughout this horrible pandemic, with the rules on not gathering in massive teams to have fun and feast within the methods we usually would. So right here’s some cheer, and good tales, to acknowledge individuals who have carried out form and heroic acts.

A younger lady dropped a bag on the BART Powell Avenue station in San Francisco. When she leaned to select it up, she slipped off the platform onto the tracks beneath. An unidentified man jumped onto the rail line to attempt to get her again onto the platform. He couldn’t elevate her to security alone and a second man jumped down to assist. Collectively they managed to get her again onto the platform.
The second hero who helped elevate the girl to security was Matt-the-Roadshow-Son. Jan and I are so relieved you had been protected and so pleased with you that you just helped stop a tragedy on this harmful state of affairs.

This comes from the Almanac Specific, a terrific supply of native information alongside the Peninsula that discovered Alex Roginski, who in non-COVID-19 occasions can be a freshman at UC Santa Barbara. As a substitute, he’s been doing distant studying from his Menlo Park house through the pandemic, and he’s not goofing round when not busy with college.
As a substitute, he hops on his bike on daily basis with a trailer he tows, a trash picker-upper and his Jack Russell terrier, Ollie, on two-hour rides round Menlo Park and Redwood Metropolis streets.
“I like discovering a extremely soiled road and cleansing it,” Roginski advised the Specific. “What I notice is the routes I cleaned a number of weeks again are nonetheless fairly clear. … It seems like the appropriate factor to do.”
Stick with it, child. And good luck with college, too.
