Every day it seems to get a little harder to find something inspirational in the news. An episode of Undercover Boss featuring Angel, an associate at Modell’s sporting goods, has at least temporarily restored our faith in humanity.
While believing she was giving a fellow employee a pep talk, what she was really doing was describing, to the company CEO, the incredibly difficult times she and her children had endured.
