Evans: There’s Something Special About Simple Charity
This is the time of the year when my psyche – after being worn down by the headaches, the hatred and the heartache around us – gets a much-needed pick-me-up from those wonderful news reports of secret Santas, free holiday dinners for the less fortunate, and communities banding together to help each other. If we keep careful watch, though, we can get our mental batteries recharged this way pretty much year round. For me, this comes whenever I hear about people, some ordinary and others extraordinary who pitch in in noteworthy ways. They lend a hand with no expectations for being rewarded, other than from their own self-satisfaction. CBS reporter Steve Hartman introduces us to these people in his weekly “On the Road” reports.
