The generosity and joy of that night stands as a measure of what “community”—good community—looks like. Yes, the funds raised that night have helped tremendously in the battle against cancer, in addition to the encouragement it gave the family. However, the sense of a town rallying to fill a need will warm hearts and stand as a testament to the goodness of people for a long time.
The moral of this true story is simply this: don’t lose hope. There are good folks all around. Keep an eye open, and join in when the opportunity presents itself. The rewards for all are amazing.
With joy and a full heart,
