Just when I start to think that all the negative energy is starting to outweigh the positive and that I might get sucked into the darkness, a story like this one comes along and I’m reminded of all that is good in the world.
Ed Moseley is and 86-year-old retired engineer who lives in an assisting living home in Georgia. When Ed and some of the other residents at the facility learned of an ‘initiative’ from a local hospital, the residents, especially Ed, jumped in and were willing to help. Atlanta’s Northside Hospital NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) was in need of something simple. They needed tiny hats to help keep the premature babies warm. Happy to have a challenge and a purpose, Ed took a few days to teach himself to knit. It took him about four days to master the skill, but then he was off and running.
Before he knew it, he had knitted dozens of tiny caps; 300 in fact. He visited the hospital to drop off the caps in person. With his gesture, Ed is warming tiny and heads and everybody’s heart.
