I feel so lucky to be able to interview people for Positively Milwaukee. Quite honestly, it keeps me sane. Sometimes a daily dose of the latest murder, kidnapping, or bizarre crime is just not good for mental health.
That is why it is such a relief to meet inspirational people. It's a reminder that there still is a lot right with the world. There are countless people who volunteer, and share their time, services and money to aid others.
Most people are not on drugs, in jail, or prone to violence. Sometimes, it's easy to forget that.
That is why the story on little D.J. Harper continues to touch our lives. We not only saw a miracle rescue after a fiery car crash. We saw the spirit of the Milwaukee community. Strangers helping strangers.
And the good people of Milwaukee are still helping the family. The story of D.J. Harper is more than just a medical milestone. It's the story of a community that has heart, and the compassion to care.
