Wanna hear something cool? I went to school with this Marine, Myles. I work with his uncle.
He didn’t think anything of helping this little boy in his hometown’s marathon. The little boy got separated from his family, and saw Myles running by and said, “Mister, could you please stay with me? I lost my family in the race…” Myles finished the race with him and helped him find his family.
We are from a tiny dot on the map in Northern Michigan….it’s not often we get on the national news…but we did. All because Myles helped a little boy. There are still good people out there. Even young people. He’s only 19.
Fun fact: I had a huge crush on him in 2nd grade… :P
