Letters For Scotty: Reddit Sends Its Love For Terminally Ill Man
Scott Widak spent all 47 years of his life in his hometown of Plainville, Massachusetts, living with his mother and surrounded by his family.
He was a guy with some especially unique hobbies. He loved WWF wrestling, classic movies, and receiving mail. So when he became terminally ill, his nephew, Sean O’Connor, took to Reddit, asking the online community to send letters to his Down Syndrome uncle and listing some of his uncle’s interests. The response Sean got was beyond anything he imagined, and became a source of great comfort to Scott and the whole family in his last days.

User Submission: A Simple Kindness on the MBTA

We ride the T almost daily. My husband uses a walker. Every time we are on the T the driver of the bus or a passenger helps him with the walker and someone always gives us both seats if there are none available in the front. This happens whether we are on the subway or a bus.

I can’t help but smile when I see this happen on public transportation. A small kindness that always leaves an impression. Thanks for sharing. — Nate
