Passing it forward on Valentine's Day


One Eastern Iowan decided to pass it forward this Valentine's Day.

Sam Rogers passed out 100 red carnations to patients at Covenant Medical Center Thursday.

"I was reading (on) the internet and watching the news, talking with my wife, and it seems like there is so much of the things that are negative… I wanted to do something nice for Valentines Day and pay it forward," Rogers said. "I talked to my wife and said, ‘for the price we pay to go out to a fancy restaurant  and have a fancy meal with my family, ya know I pay less to be able to bring happiness to a hundred patients."

Rogers says he hopes this is a lesson to his son on how to be a gentleman.
