Patrick Connelly’s wheelchair kept him from being able to actually see his favorite country singer perform at the outdoor show.

In the sweltering summer heat his mom and sister tried to hold him up but he was too heavy for them.

Then, all of a sudden two strangers come over and lifted him up high. They let him watch the show for 15 minutes or so, sweat dripping from their brows. They even brought him up to the front, wading through the standing room-only crowd.

I realize how this event (the "Miracle on the Hudson") had touched people's lives, how ready they were for good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. We've had a worldwide economic downturn, and people are confused, fearful and just so ready for good news. They want to feel reassured that all the things we value, all our ideals, still exist.
