In Bismarck – Literally A “Coat Off A Man’s Back” For A Stranger
Happens way more than you think
These are the stories I search for, the ones that instantly make me feel good. It's not about my favorite sports team winning a huge game or an event that is coming to town. This is as real as it gets, and it happens more than you think, especially in Bismarck.
Have you ever seen an expression come to life right in front of your eyes?
Here is what made my day this past weekend, I was just skimming through some posts on Bismarck People Reporting News when I saw this:
"What it means to be human..."
It took Brandon all of about 30 seconds on the phone this afternoon to tell me what he witnessed, but I wanted to know more. "What were your exact thoughts when you saw what happened?" - Without hesitation, he told me he immediately felt "...what it means to be a North Dakotan....What it means to be human" This is the part I love so much, I reminded Brandon that lately Bismarck/Mandan has had some depressing things come about, restaurants and businesses closing for good and some unusual acts of violence. His reply was perfect "I would bet you that this happens MORE than the bad stuff - happens way more than you think". Because the kindness shown to those less fortunate is provided by so many who are humble and need no fanfare whatsoever. That to me is huge. Thank you to those who treat others with mutual respect, like Brandon Loftis.
