Very well said. Unfortunately, good stories don't bring ratings anymore. As a society we have made a reality show out of our lives. Drama and controversy are the only important aspects of it. Glad to see that some people bother to bring good stories to the forefront and there are folks who still appreciate them.
I disagree wholeheartedly about good stories not bringing ratings - look at the stories that go viral on social media and a significant many of them, if not the majority, are "feel good" events. I don't understand why mainstream media doesn't jump on the bandwagon of social media and present these types of stories (the ones that do are simply showing the viral videos that are already on social media, but not getting their own stories to report on).
Absolutely! Remember Sully and the "Miracle on the Hudson"? They even made a movie out of that one and several books, too..........
TL;DNR: She was his one-millionth passenger. The envelope contained the cash equivilent of her airfare price (paid out of the pilot's own pocket).
LAst week I watched a United Pilot who was headed downstairs for pre flight check, turn around and come back onto the jet way to escort an Older women all the way to her seat. And often I see this kind of kindness from crews and other passengers. The adult babies who fly and also work for airlines are the ones making the news.
