Every Monday morning we bring you feel good stories to balance out all the bad news

October 21, 2019

Today on Kevin & Bean we have GREAT NEWS stories for you. We find news stories that make you feel good and restore your faith in humanity to balance out all the bad news you hear on the news.

This morning Allie introduced us to 2-year old Braelyn from Clearfield, UT. She and her mother were in a vehicle accident, and she was freaking out in the backseat. The firefighters from the North Davis Fire District in West Point were on the scene first and were able to change everything thanks to their quick thinking. When they walked up to her she was screaming really loud, and they knew they needed to do something to calm her down. They noticed she was holding nail polish, so they opened them up and let her paint their nails. Now, these two big firefighters were proudly showing off their freshly painted fingernails for photos. Both firefighters are fathers to little girls and what they did totally worked. This video is adorable and now all Braelyn wants to do is paint people's fingernails. This was Allie’s GREAT NEWS!!!

Bean brought our attention to 21-year-old Satchel Smith. He is a Lamar University track athlete and part-time employee at the Homewood Suites in Beaumont, TX.  Back in September, Tropical Storm Imelda caused major flooding to Beaumont TX and the hotel where he was working. During the storm, he was the only employee at the hotel taking care of everything, for 32 hours. He was the only person taking care of all the guests, answering phones, cooking, washing dishes, washing laundry. He did it all, which is unbelievable, that he didn’t just walk out the door. He lost a car to flooding during hurricane Harvey and lost a second car to flooding during Imelda. Well, he has been rewarded. Senator Brandon Creighton led a ceremony to honor Smith then presented him with a new car, a 2013 hybrid Honda Insight. Why is the car six years old? If you’re going to give the brother a new car, give the brother a new car. This was Bean’s GREAT NEWS!!!

Kevin told us about Dylan Ence, a Dixie High School senior who is donating a school bus and school supplies to a school in Mexico. As a freshman, he visited a small school in Patamban, Michoacan Mexico. He noticed that at this school the kids have nothing. No pencils, no paper, and the students all live at the school. The school doesn’t have a bus and it is too far for them to walk, and their parents can’t pick them up. So they go to school on Monday and they stay there until Friday. He looked at this situation and thought it was unfair that they didn’t have anything. So, he spent his entire 4 years in high school raising money for a bus. He took his family to Minnesota where they bought a bus and brought it back and now they are raising money to buy school supplies to fill the bus. This Christmas, their plan is to drive the school bus all the way down to the town in Mexico to deliver the bus and all the other items. He started planning and doing all of this when he was a freshman, and he’s a senior now. Kevin was throwing rocks at his neighbor’s house. This guy is so much better than him and all of us. His mom also said something amazing that is the reason why we do this feature. She said, “I think if everyone everywhere did just a small gesture, that our world would be a better place.”  This was Kevin’s GREAT NEWS!!!
