Top prize goes to...

Here's a feel-good story from the AP if you happen to need a buzz.

There is one very happy 13-year-old in New York. A veteran presented her with his purple heart after she won a "letters to the front" contest.
"It's important what these children do for us in sending these letters," Staff Sgt. Phillip Trackey said after giving away the medal he received for injuries in Iraq. "The letters mean so much to us. So I thought this was a big way of giving something back to them."
[Fatima Faisal] said she didn't know what to say or do.

"I'm touched. I'm speechless," Fatima said. "This is the sweetest thing ever."
Yeah that's say the least.
