An act of kindness can mean the world to someone living on the streets. A Milwaukee bus driver saw how she could help firsthand when a regular passenger found himself homeless.

Natalie Barnes, a bus driver with the Milwaukee County Transit System, found one of her regular passengers, Richard, had been homeless for a week. His home had been condemned and he had nowhere else to go.

Surveillance video officially released by the MCTS shows their interactions over time.

Not wanting him to have to brave the cold night without shelter, Barnes offered to let him stay on the bus while she drove her night shift. He accepted and rode the bus at night to keep warm.

It's a touching story, setting hearts aglow.






She offered to buy the man food and, after some reluctance on his part, he relented. Richard offered to repay Barnes, but she refused.

She says in the video:

"I want to help you."

On a break, Barnes called a friend and set Richard up with an emergency shelter. The agency has been able to secure him permanent housing and get him back on his feet.

How can your heart not melt hearing about this?







For this act of selflessness, Barnes received a commendation from the MCTS. It's not her first, as she's received two other commendations for outstanding service in the two years she's worked there.

Barnes and Richard are still friends. He has her cell phone number and updates her on his condition every few days.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
