The Giving Hearts of NOLA and Beyond

NOLA Blogger and writer Amy Mueller took her autistic daughter to Muses parade last week and had to leave early due to a drunken, disgusting close-minded college kid harassing Amy and her daughter and then using the ultimate insult. Amy's post is here. When I read it I cried and became very, very angry.

As of Friday evening there are over 600 responses to Amy's post, all illustrating how wonderfully caring and generous people can be. Read through them, it'll made you feel good about mankind.

Then today around lunchtime the Krewe of Muses, an all women krewe, opened their den to Emily, showered her with bags of parade goodies and let her climb on a float.

Also on hand were the 610 Stompers (ordinary men with extraordinary moves)
