We all want to do the right thing. Or at least some of us do at least some of the time. It seems like there are a lot of that kind of story in this latest radio playlist. Maybe there always are—it does seem like an inherent public radio value. In any case, here are some stories about doing the right thing. Actually we start with a study of why and how we don’t do the right thing all of the time…followed by people trying to save things: London’s pubs, frogs, earth; working out better ways to handle problems: Wild hogs, The Mafia, Reading, PA’s cyclists; and honoring the memory of people who did the right thing and lost their lives.
I cannot imagine losing a child. But to lose a child and turn that grief into support for others year after year, that’s a very difficult way of doing the right thing.
