FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY
CHICAGO MAN JUMPED INTO LAKE MICHIGAN FOR 365 STRAIGHT DAYS: A Chicago bus driver jumped into Lake Michigan for a 365th straight day on Saturday (June 12th), reaching a full year of the jumps he started doing as a way to relieve stress during the pandemic. Dan O’Conor said of starting to jump into the lake at Montrose Harbor on the city’s North Side, “It was during the pandemic, it was during the protest, it was during an election year. . . . So it was somewhere where I could come down here and block all that noise out and kind of be totally present with me in the lake, and find some moments of Zen.” The father of three kept jumping into Lake Michigan even after winter arrived and it froze, hacking a hole in the ice that was big enough for him to jump through. Saturday was a special day because it was the culmination of O’Conor doing it for a full year. He said, “I just wanted to celebrate just that drive to dive for 365.” (Fox News)
