Photos That Prove There Are Good Hearted People

These are the people that keep our society going and who are often the unsung heroes of our days. They don't get their name in the newspapers, but they make a difference without asking for recognition.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/05/15:

The photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane.

"It will be waiting for you at the airport!" he was assured by his editor.

As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway.

He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, "Let's go! Let's go!"

The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air.

"Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "and make three or four low level passes."

"Why?" asked the pilot.

"Because I'm going to take pictures! I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures!" said the photographer with great exasperation.

After a long pause the pilot said, "You mean you're not the instructor?"

When You Wish Upon a Star

Music by Leigh Harline (26 Mar 1907 – 10 Dec 1969); Lyrics by Ned Washington (15 Aug 1901 – 20 Dec 1976)
for
Walt Disney's (05 Dec 1901 – 15 Dec 1966) adaptation of Pinocchio, 1940

Originally sung by Cliff Edwards (14 June1895 – 17 July 1971) as Jiminy Cricket


When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
