WLOX Editorial: Thank you for making the world better

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - We hear about many bad things that happen in our world and sometimes in our communities. But we contend there’s a whole lot more good things happening.

Cases in point: A few shoppers at Walmart in Wiggins had their layaway items paid off by a “Secret Santa.” The same thing happened in Pass Christian. Another Secret Santa paid off a thousand dollars in layaway items. It’s happening around the country.

Then there’s the man who stopped and helped Biloxi police restrain someone who was in danger of hurting himself. He stepped up with no expectation of recognition. He just knew they needed help.

This time of year so many, many people step up to help others. And for many more, they step up all year long. To all of you, thank you for making this part of the world a little better.

That’s our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
