After hearing Mike Patterson's story in the news, people from all across the world have donated thousands of dollars to assist the Patterson family in paying for Mike's medical bills. The contribution left his mother touched. She proclaimed, "I did not realize that there was still kindness in this world like there is. I kind of thought the world had grown cold until this happened to my son."
Indeed, with some of the horrors reported in the news, acts of kindness can often be overlooked. They might not always make it to the silver screen like some caped crusaders, but quiet heroes like Mike Patterson are the true heroes whose tangible acts leave an indelible mark on people's lives.
