Good Samaritans

Good Samaritans, Several people are putting the “good” in Good Samaritan lately. A woman in New York claimed that actor Ryan Gosling saved her life earlier this week. Last month, a Florida woman helped rescue the child of an angry driver trapped in a burning car. Their stories as well as those of other every day heroes — and a few stars — help renew our faith in human kindness.
