Good Samaritan©

My heart breaks because I cannot heal your pain.

So many helpless names and faces.

No one cares,

No one wonders,

Where they will find shelter,

Where they will find food,

Each one who passes looks back with disgust;

But truly they should only feel shame.

Shame doesn’t s cross their mind.

They believe they have done nothing wrong as they look the other way.

Some day they may need a helping hand,

They may find that no one wants to help them.

So as I pass by I give all I can and wish them good luck,

wishing and asking for nothing in return.

I hope for their future, wishing only good things.

May their tomorrows be better than their today’s.

May they find the strength to begin over again.

May they receive the helping hand so badly needed.

May they find the strength and the courage to take all the help that is given.

May each person who has something to offer

be generous enough to share with someone who needs something.

Be kind-hearted and gentle and offer words of encouragement.

Your reward will be happiness and comfort.

Your heart will feel warmth and you may even shed a tear.

This is a good thing.

The help you lend offers happiness to an entire family

who may have lost the chance to see their loved one whole again.

So won’t you be kind and help the one you think to pass by.

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. —Kindergartner Danny Keefe is getting the Hollywood treatment this week.

The dapper 6-year-old is in Los Angeles to be a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” after schoolchildren rallied in recent weeks to support the Bridgewater boy who has a speech impediment and has been picked on by other children, the Enterprise reported.

“It feels pretty good. I’m happy,” Danny said Wednesday in a telephone interview from Universal Studios Hollywood.

Danny said he picked up a stuffed animal of Nemo to give to DeGeneres, who played the role of the forgetful fish Dory in the film “Finding Nemo.”

Danny’s devoted friend, Tommy Cooney of Bridgewater, joined him in Los Angeles.
“It feels amazing because we’re in California and we’re going to Ellen,” said Tommy, 11, a fifth-grader at Williams Intermediate School.

Danny and Tommy have been in Los Angeles with their parents, Mark and Jennifer Keefe and Tom and Corinne Cooney, since Sunday and they expect to fly home on Friday. Danny was scheduled to tape the show Thursday, with his segment set to air on national television on Friday, he said.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs locally at 4 p.m. Friday on WCVB-TV Channel 5.

Danny’s father, Mark Keefe, said his family is in awe of the national media attention Danny has received.

“It still seems so surreal. We look at each other, and we just laugh like, ‘This is really happening?’” Keefe said Wednesday. “It’s amazing. The kids are having a blast.”
Keefe said the show paid for the round-trip airfare and hotel stay for Danny, Tommy and their parents.

Danny, the official water coach for the Bridgewater Badgers Div. 5 Peewees, made headlines last month when The Enterprise reported his teammates had rallied together to support him, after they saw Danny was getting picked on because of the way he speaks.

Danny speaks with difficulty due to childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) after suffering a serious brain hemorrhage at birth, his family said.

Tommy, the Badgers’ quarterback, decided to wear a suit to school – just like Danny, who wears a suit and fedora to school every day – in a show of support for his young friend.

In November, for “Danny Appreciation Day,” more than 40 students from the Mitchell and Williams schools crowded around the little boy in the Williams school library cheering, “Danny, Danny.”

Since then, Danny has been busy on the television interview circuit. He has appeared on the national morning shows “Fox and Friends” and “Good Morning America.”
