    What's This?

    By Jeff Leeson



    Country superstar Blake Shelton is not only a great singer, he's also a good dude.
    An Oklahoma man's truck stalled while trying to cross a flooded road, and just as things took a bad turn, a familiar face showed up in a truck with a rope. That face belonged to none other than Blake Shelton, who helped tow the stranded man to safety, and made sure he got home in one piece.



    If this isn't the basis for an amazing country song, we don't know what is.

    (There's an awesome video of the news story at the link)

    That's a really nice thing to do. Most people probably wouldn't.

    His music still sucks and isn't country tho.

    Although I'm quick to say that I hate people, I'd like to think most would help in this situation.

    Me too! If I couldn't physically help (which I couldn't) I would at least call for help.

    I do leave the house, once a year whether I need to or not.

    I've pushed vehicles out of ditches, given directions, loaned phone, loaned gas can, given rides. I didn't think it was that unusual.

    If people ask me for directions, I always help them. Never mind that I have zero sense of direction and often, unwillingly send them off in the wrong direction. I know where things are, but I can't explain how to get there. Not helpful at all, even if I mean well.

    I think most people would have helped out too, if they had the right equipment handy. It's not like he jumped into a tsunami or took on a polar bear. True risk-your-life heroism may be rare, but every day acts of kindness are not. I've both helped and been helped by strangers.

    They would've needed a truck and equipment. A small car might've had some serious trouble.
