"CNN Heroes"

I was watching CNN today and heard about a great special reporting segment they are running called "CNN Heroes."

The story that was highlighted was about a former soccer star in Haiti who has decided to dedicate his life's work to promising athletes that are growing up in Cité Soleil, the country’s largest slum. He founded L’Athletique d’Haiti, a program that offers after-school sports and tutoring to 1,300 children a day.

What a great man. Makes you thankful there's still some genuine hearts out there.

Kudos to CNN. It's about time the "real" people start getting some recognition for their efforts from persuasive media.

There's a bunch of great hero stories from all kinds of real people making a difference on the site. Keep it up, ya'll.
