In a way that's kinda sad. I think people today need to here about people just helping people out. The news very seldom covers anything like that.
I had no idea about people helping people in 1971. I had been raised in NJ up till then. Sure my dad helped people when he could but the same people he helped were no where to be seen when he needed help. My first summer here in MN the guy who would become my sisters father in law told me about plowing and planting bees. A wonderful thing where people just showed up to help out. IN 73 while working for a dairy farmer I got to help out in one. My boss ask if I was willing as I didn't know anything about it or the guys in need. It started out as just helping one guy who was pretty bad off with cancer and about a week before it happened a guy on a bordering farm had a heart attack. So we did a 2 for. I was lucky. Most of the hired help got to pick rock. My boss and I were both on tractors with plows. We had 47 tractors in the field that day. It was a fantastic sight to see. The local chruch ladies did lunch, a local COOP donated the fuel and had a guy out there topping off trators at lunch time. Even the banker showed up and ask if he could do anyting. One old farmer told him he could buy the beer or pick rock. LOL he came back a couple of hours later with a bunch of cold beer in coolers in the back of a pickup! I, for the first time in my life, saw a whole community come together to help people out. I learned a lot that day!

It's sad today to when some people will not een help out thier own family. I always do that. Not bragging, just a statement of fact! That's why most of the time I really enjoy this board. Most of us on that will help people out and never let anyone in out families suffer if we can help it. We may have different political views, like different colors of equipment or come from different countries but at the end of the day most of us will put out family and freinds first!
