I guess it is just a small indication of what our world has come to when it makes headline news that the Pope gave up his seat for a young boy with Down Syndrome. This is a man who is the epitome of goodness. We would expect him to do the right thing but it is being posted everywhere like it is an unexpected gesture. I guess it is giving him more of a personal image that he gave up his seat and embraced the boy.
I am showing my ignorance here, but the thing the Pope was riding on that is supposed to be almost royal looks like part of a pontoon boat. It even looks like the seat swivels around.
It was a really sweet thing, I guess I am just confused why it is such "news" that the Pope did a good thing. The articles said the boy's shirt might have caught the Pope's eye. It was given to the boy as a gift from his parish priest.
Oh, lord, I hope the late night talk show hosts lets this rest as a good deed and don't take off on jokes. That will jolt us back into the real world!
