I just got an automated phone call from the recorded voice of one Peter Bell, who apparently is in charge of C.A.R.E.

I immediately started to cringe, partly because I hate automated phone calls and partly because I thought “oh no, they aren’t going to...”

He delivered a short eulogy to Margaret Hassan and then asked that everyone honor her memory by working for a more peaceful world. And he didn’t ask for a contribution, or even give contact info or tell me to go to a website or anything. He just said thank you.

So, despite the automated phone call, I’ve got say this guy is a class act.

My faith in people ain't great.

I'm always impressed by little things like that. Sometimes, people aren't scum. Sometimes they don't take the opportunity to profit off of someone else's demise. THAT, my friend, always leaves me a little in awe, and perhaps touched.
