Heartwarming Story

The video below tells the story of a gay college student who was being bullied in the form of vandalism to his car.  A local garage found out and offered to fix (and improve) his vehicle for free.  I love stories like this, and sometimes I have a hard time wrapping my head around them because it is such a stark difference to the homophobic world I grew up in.  When I was growing up, I'm pretty sure that everyone around me would be saying that the gay guy just got what was coming to him.  I certainly wouldn't have expected anybody to sympathize and assist him, especially someone from a "blue collar" profession like automotive repair.  I'm astounded by the difference a couple of decades can make, and it gives me such hope for the future.
