A Letter From Kansas


This clip made the national news tonight.

A small gift  from the deepest red state to the deepest blue state.

Blessings upon Dennis and Sharon, a Kansas farmer and his wife.


About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

  1. This is touching beyond belief. We DO have so many good people in our country! Too often, the “bad guys” are all I can see.

    Such a beautiful contrast to all the ugliness we have seen on recent news reports.
    Reblogging this to give people something positive to look at for a change.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    With all the nonsense from The White House driving us crazy, and news reports of freedom protestors so incredible to behold, it is easy to think that America has lost its way, in the midst of this pandemic.
    So here is something good for a change. Something positive to look at, and to make us realise that not everyone is selfish and heartless, or strutting around carrying guns and wearing military-style clothing. This is the news that we rarely see reported on the BBC here.
    My thanks to Frank for featuring it on his excellent blog

    I had not seen this. I was bowled over by the gift and by Cuomo’s heartfelt response.

    This is not meant to be a political comment, but I have been so impressed by Governor Cuomo throughout this health crisis. The government rightly gets criticized at times (Thank goodness we have that right), but some people are trying to do the right thing and realize that this situation is much more than politics. For every despicable action, there is a hero somewhere in the world (in this case, a farmer from Kansas) who gets what it means to look out for others.
