(Author’s note: Last week was Thanksgiving, and having to coordinate things got complicated. So no FF last week. Making up with a song I recently found, and a story to go with it. Here’s today’s fictioneers!)
Good Man In A Storm
by Miles H. Rost
Brian Goodwin had a ministry of security.
His home was open to anyone who needed a place of shelter, a hiding place, or a waypoint on a life-changing journey.
Domestic violence situation? He’d be there to give you a place to gather and plan the next steps.
Depressed? He’d be there with tea and a book, and give you a few days to recover.
As long as there was a reference from someone he knew, you’d have access to him and his house.
Years ago, someone showed kindness to Brian, a mute man.
He’s that good man in a storm.
He sounds like a good friend to have. I wonder what he does for jollies
Love this uplifting story 🙂
Brian Goodwin sounds like a good man. A paying it forward kind of guy. Loved the story!
Altruism is underrated.
