Hero

Thanks to Katie for sharing:

“Warning: this is a POSITIVE “does anyone recognize this guy?” Doorbell camera post. Typically posted videos from Ring cameras are about package thefts, break ins, people juggling car doors on the street to see what’s open…and our neighborhood list serv is always littered with these this time of year. But this morning I saw an alert while I was as setting up my 6am class at Off Road DC – I clicked over and thought it was a little weird for a delivery that early, but figured maybe someone got my mail or whatever. Turns out: I was in a huge rush this am and didn’t zip my bag. My wallet fell out in the middle of the road. This guy was nice enough to stop his van, clearly checked the address on the ID and returned it under our mat. Anyone who lives in DC knows this is pretty much unheard of- you drop a wallet, you lose a wallet, and you usually lose everything in your accounts if you’re not quick, too. Counting my blessings today- im damn lucky. Random Dallas fan in the plaid with the white van: thank you. You’re what’s right in the world.

Amazing. On November 9th we learned that:

“an armed robbery occurred in the 1600 block of Franklin Street, NE at approximately 7pm on the evening of November 9th. The victim of the robbery was exiting his vehicle when he was approached by a man with a gun who took several items of value from the victim. After obtaining the items the suspect attempted to run to an awaiting vehicle, but the victim’s dog, who was in the car at the time of the robbery, jumped from the vehicle and attacked the robber. A second suspect waiting in the car fired a single shot, striking the dog.”

At that time all we knew as that the owner took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment of its injuries. I am happy to report that MPD has now let me know that “the dog is alive. He lost his eye but is now back with his owner.” It’s not much but I know many, myself included, were eager to learn how the hero dog was doing. That s/he is alive and back home is great news. Thanks to all for messaging me their concerns for the pup.

“Anyone with information related to this crime is encouraged to call MPD at 202-727-9099, or text the information to 5-0-4-1-1.”

Thanks to Kelsey for sending:

“Since we haven’t had one in a bit – I thought I’d submit one. No picture but, while I was in Whole Foods, a woman was attempting to patiently wait out her toddler’s complete meltdown. It went on for pretty much the entire time I was in the store, screams, tears, lying in the ground. Her mom managed to get into check out with the toddler still screaming. Beyond the looks she was getting and the under the breath remarks, one woman was audacious enough to let her know that this wasn’t normal behavior and her child was probably autistic. (more…)
