Uplifting Post

Ok. I told you that getting today's earlier post off my chest would get me ready to have more "uplifting" posts, so when I saw this news story, I just had to pass it along. Hopefully, you will be as "uplifted" as I was!

DETROIT (AP) - The metal underwire in a Detroit woman's bra is being credited with deflecting a bullet fired at her during a break-in at a neighbor's home.

Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan says the 57-year-old woman apparently looked out her window Tuesday when one of three men fired the shot.

He says the slug smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra's underwire. It did not penetrate her skin.

Police say she may have gone to the window after a burglar alarm at the house next door sounded. Her neighbor was not at home at the time.

The suspects drove away after the shooting.

An "uplifting" story in more ways than one! Those underwire bras may be uncomfortable, but talk about "supportive!"

Great story, thanks for passing that alone.
