There's been so much terrible news this week out of Florida, it's almost cathartic to share with you a corporate kindness that seems to be spreading.

Just hours after the massacre at the Pulse nightclub JetBlue airline, with no fanfare, started providing free rides to and from Orlando for families and partners of the shooting victims.

Tuesday, the grandmother of 20-year-old Luis Ocasio-Capo, one of the nightclub victims, was on-board a JetBlue flight to Orlando, and the flight attendants decided to pass around a piece of paper, a make shift sympathy card for other passengers to sign their names to for the family.

But instead, people started writing extended condolences and filling up sheet after sheet of paper, a couple even made cash donations. And when they landed in Orlando and the passengers were deplaning, they all waited by the door to offer their condolences personally.

In fact, flight attendants say every single person on that plane waited and said something to the grandmother, or squeezed her hand or hugged her, some cried with her.

But don't forget, it started with JetBlue stepping up.
