There are so many things that are bringing us down that it's sometimes hard to get back up.  However, every day more and more good things are happening that prove there is hope with the human race.  It's too bad it takes a crisis like this to bring them out.  We'll take it, though, any way we can.

A freep.com article the other day showed us one of those acts of kindness and selflessness.  Allen Marshall was planning to use the $900 he saved to buy a knife sharpening tool.  But with the COVID-19 outbreak affecting the finances of so many people around the Detroit area, he decided to donate the money in a unique way.  Since Wednesday, Marshall, who is from Detroit but now lives in St. Clair Shores, has been buying fuel for essential workers at the Exxon gas station on Mack Avenue and I-75, near Eastern Market. His wife is an essential worker at Blue Cross Blue Shield nearby, so when he drops her off at work, he sets up at the gas station until she gets off. He plans to continue his good deed on Thursday until the money runs out.
