There hasn't been many "happy" stories in the news recently, but thanks to Pete Stilianessis from the NJ State Troopers Union, we changed that narrative, at least for a little while.

Pete called in to let us know about an event happening this morning at Trenton Airport. A group of special needs kids were on a day trip to Disney World in Florida. The kids were part of the Sunshine Foundation's Operation Dreamlifts.

To see the kids off, a group of NJ Troopers, local police and fire, alongside civilians dressed as superheroes, showed up to see the kids off on their amazing journey.

Listen to Pete talk about the event and see some photos and video in the YouTube clip below.
