What with all the negativity, I thought a thread reporting ramdom acts of kindness would be nice.

Here is one:

Kitten found after scampering into subway 25 days ago

"Captivated by the tale of the missing pet, track flagman Mark Dalessio and track inspector Efrain LaPorte had been diligently checking the area where Georgia had been spotted by a Con Ed worker on Wednesday.

The two MTA workers combed the rails below Lexington Ave. near 55th St. with a cat's pajamas of a strategy.

"As I was walking down the track, I was making cat sounds, meowing," Dalessio told the Daily News. "I heard a 'meow' back and I thought it was LaPorte. I thought, 'Wow, LaPorte is inspired.' "

"Then I heard it again," Dalessio said. "I looked down, and said, 'It's Georgia!' "

The frightened feline was taking shelter in a foot-deep metal drain between two tracks when she was spotted.

As Dalessio extended his hand toward the cat, sweet Georgia gave him a lick.

"It was kinda cute," he said. "I can imagine the fear the cat had with trains going by."

The track workers called police, and in minutes, NYPD transit cops Sgt. Daniel Green and Police Officer Ilker Ozuk climbed down and rescued the cat."

Great idea for a thread Alameda!

I have a little boy in my class with Downs Syndrome and he also has Autism. It is wonderful to see his class mates take such pleasure in his company and in helping him.
