This story of human kindness is just what we needed today. Aaron Rowland is an environmental services employee at the Riley Children's Health Emergency Department, and back in April he and his wife experienced tragedy when their home burned down.

Making it out of the house with absolutely nothing but his wife and cat, Aaron was overwhelmed with gratitude at the level of love and support his co-workers in the Riley Emergency Department showed them. We already know the folks at Riley Children's based on all the incredible work they do for their patients, but we love to see employees like Aaron receiving some of the positivity he's so known to give others.
