Heartwarming, Not Heart-Sliming

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

With all the disheartening news surrounding the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s good to hear some positivity on occasion. The National Park Service’s website recently published a story about a message in a bottle.
Sound tacky? Hardly. Apparently, one of the oil spill clean-up crews found letters written from the family of a British soldier who died in Afghanistan in 2009. Members of the crew were so touched by the letters that they wrote back to the family, sending photos of the group and a tee-shirt signed by all the crew members.
Here’s the story as told on the Adventure Guys’ Blog:
