Heather M. Perkins letter: Two stories confirm quality of life here

With such an uncertain economy right now, a missing University of North Dakota woman, and a girl who left her infant to die in a freezing apartment, it is sometimes hard to open the paper in the morning and see what is next. However, in the last two weeks, two stories have uplifted my spirit and made me proud to live in Fargo.

I shed tears all over the paper as I read the article about how the unit clerks and staff at MeritCare helped support and reunite an ill man and his little terrier. Talk about a call above duty! As a nurse myself, I can appreciate, (and hope that others can too), how sometimes just the smallest thing makes all the difference in the world. I am so proud to know those people and they deserve huge kudos for the spirit of humanity which they share.

Second, I want to take a minute to applaud those who have reached out and helped Kathy Hanson, in an outpouring of support to a stranger in need. This is what it's all about, people. Reaching out and connecting to each other; making this community strong and solid. I am so proud to live in this community, with people like each of you, who make a difference in little ways everyday. Let's not forget those businesses listed that donated money and certificates to Hanson, as they certainly deserve our business.

Way to go, Fargo!
