Sing up for We Are The World Blogfest!
We Are The World Blogfest

It’s the last Friday of the month and it’s the aim of ‘We are The World Blogfest’ to shine a little light on any darkness in the world or in ourselves by sharing uplifting stories. This is a once a month happening.

The story I’ve chosen to tell is one that happens often here in South Africa. While our country remains mired in corruption, very shady deals enacted by certain members in our government, thievery and thuggery, there are always people from all walks of life who make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop

A police officer in Cape Town spends his mornings doing the most phenomenal acts of kindness

Please join us if you would like, and spread the word by adding your own personal story or some other enlightening event. Let’s set about diluting/dissolving the negativity around the world and bringing in the light. This is the link.

  1. Thank you, Susan. I love it. It’s so important to remember what this man and so many others give. You brightened my day.

  2. I read this a while back…and it resonated.
    You and I know the not-so-good image, and the negativity that often surrounds the police force in our country. This is because corruption, thievery and thuggery is so rife.
    But this story proves that we must stop generalising. There are many good individuals out there… πŸ™‚
    Thanks, Susan!

    (It’s hot here today…30 degrees. I’m off to the beach…shortly…)

    • Thanks Michelle! I agree there is tooo much generalisation about the cops and always so lovely to hear of those good cops … a warm day here on the highveld!

  3. Hi Susan – what a lovely thing to do … there are a lot of wonderful people out there – sadly the negative bully boys seem to win the media’s attention. So good to read about … cheers Hilary

    • Thanks Hilary for coming by! Yes, so many heart warming stories big and small everywhere in the world .. πŸ™‚ Susan

  4. It warms my heart that this police officer is so compassionate toward the homeless. For many of us, our next meal is never in doubt. We never stop to think that people are going hungry all over the world. I’m glad this officer is at least giving these people breakfast and I can’t help but think they are eternally grateful to him. Thanks for sharing and participating in this month’s #WATWB.

    • Many of us don’t think about where our next meal is coming from – this is so true and important to remember. We can easily add to our regular shopping basket items like coffee and tea, cartons of milk, sugar, tins of veg etc and donate for the homeless. Thank you for coming by. I loved your story of bicycles!

    • Plenty good okes in good ‘ol SA Robbie! Somehow we always come to the table when others are in need. This is one of the significant qualities that will get us through these difficult times!

  5. Yes, this story IS heartwarming and positive. We do have police officers who care about their community and have compassionate hearts, but sadly we hear too much negativity. Thanks for spreading the wealth! Delightful!

    • We also hear too many stories of cops gone wrong Gwynn, or people who started off straight but somehow got crooked. It’s so heartwarming when such a story comes along that disabuses us of our disillusionment! Have a lovely weekend!

  6. This is the kind of story that makes me smile at all the good people in the world. They’re out there, aren’t they? Thanks for sharing the story.
