EL PASO STRONG!





For those of you who had a late Saturday night and didn't get up quite as early as we did this morning, you might have missed the 7 a.m. Willie Geist News Program. Today on the Highs and Lows he talked about an 11 year old, 6th grader named Ruben Martinez, who lives in El Paso, Texas where the shootings occurred last week.


Ruben, of course, was frightened by this tragedy, and his mother told him that he cannot live in fear. So he decided to get busy and do something for the better. He decided to do 22 Acts of Kindness to honor those 22 victims. The first day he bought tacos for the first responders at the Walmart, and on the second day he bought a rose for each medical person who assisted the victims. And he continues to find ways to complete his mission of 22 acts.


Ruben has asked others in El Paso and across the country to try and do the same thing in order to make the world a better place. And the best part is that people have responded to Ruben's challenge and have started to share on social media what they have done!


What an inspiration this kid is. Why don't we all try to do at least one act of kindness and possibly more. If an 11 year old can do it with his limited resources, how about us?


We'd love to hear from anyone has done something towards this challenge!
