A Great Thanksgiving Story

FOX ran this story.  I know it’s not political, but it’s a touching story, as a celebrity/sports star did a truly remarkable thing for a family he doesn’t even know.

Basketball star Shaquille O’Neal paid for the funeral of a 5-year-old North Carolina girl because he was moved by the tragic story of her kidnapping and murder.

We’ve all head in the news about Shaniya Davis, a five year old that was kidnapped and murdered in North Carolina.  Her own mother and another detestable human being are charged in the crime.  It’s a truly sad story, but the fact that a celebrity like Shaq can pony up and pay for this little angel’s funeral is a great story for Thanksgiving.

I’m no fan of Shaq on the basketball court, but he’s definitely got my respect and support as a human being.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
