Moscow Rallies For Special Olympians

Elizabeth King has been humbled in the days following the theft of equipment from the Moscow Special Olympics by an outpouring of community support. Equipment and monetary donations have poured in over the past few days to compensate for $4,000 in equipment that was reported stolen from the team's Moscow storage unit near the intersection of South Main Street and Palouse River Drive. The help has ensured the team will get to compete in the coming State Winter Games. King, who is the coach of the Moscow Rebel Tigers, said she discovered the theft about 8:30 a.m. Saturday just before the team's weekly practice. King reported the break-in to the Moscow Police Department when she realized a storage container holding snowshoes and cross-country ski boots was missing. "The whole tub was gone," she said/Elizabeth Rudd, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: I don't know whether to be amazed at another warm show of community spirit in the panhandle or appalled by the smallness of heart that someone would have to have to commit this crime. What say you?
