Great things happen when people come together....Nov 23, 2021
In 2016, a three-year-old boy wandered away from home in Antigo, Wisconsin.
About 500 of the local townspeople people set out to look for him.
For 20 hours, they searched...and searched….and searched…
Finally, a volunteer discovered the little boy, unharmed, sitting cross-legged in a nearby cornfield, waiting for someone to find him.
That volunteer who found him was called a hero… but he refused to take credit.
Instead, he said: “It took hundreds of us to find him.”
The local Sheriff called the support “Nothing short of amazing”
Great things happen when people come together.

Or when the Women's Soccer Team beat Thailand 13-0 in the last World Cup.
