Editorial: There are still good Samaritans

(Toledo News Now) – In spite of what you might be led to believe if you watch the news, there are still some nice, decent people out there. 

Here's one: Dan Tierney. Last week my wife was involved in a car accident when another vehicle plowed into hers. She was on a country road and it was cold outside.

Mr. Tierney, who was not involved in the accident,  stopped his car and ran over to my wife to make sure she was ok. He called the highway patrol and stayed a half-hour with her until the police arrived. He offered an eyewitness accounting of the accident. 

My wife was pretty shook up.  Mr. Tierney, a complete stranger, provided much-needed comfort and assistance. 

So, we stopped by his house the other day to say thank you. He was surprised to see us. To him, his kindness was no big deal…it was just the right thing to do. 

As I said, there are still some nice, decent people out there.

    The recent decision of ProMedica's Board of Trustees to enter into a transfer agreement with Capital Care Network, Toledo's last remaining abortion facility, just doesn't make sense.
