A friend named Dennis just shared with me the following story and said I could share it with you. I enjoy experiencing and sharing such stories, and believe you do too.
“…thought I’d share a story with you on something that happened this morning. It was around 7:30 or so and I decided to go to a nearby grocery store for some juice and tea. The store is located in a mini mall, adjacent to one of the busiest intersections near my work. As I approach the intersection to make a right turn, I notice a car parked in the intersection, like it was broken down. Then I notice an elderly woman on a power scooter and another woman trying to push her and the scooter out of the street.
“Once it hit me what had happened I jumped out of my car to help her with it. The scooter was locked up so it wouldn’t roll so we had to drag it (with the woman still sitting on the scooter, evidently, unable or too shaken up to walk). What was miraculous about the woman coming to aid the person on the scooter is that she had parked her car in such a way so as to shield the woman on the scooter from the ongoing traffic. In addition, she was only about 5’ 2” tall, was wearing a business suit/skirt and had high heels on. She was a small woman and I don’t know how she managed with those shoes on but she was getting after it.
“We finally got the scooter over to the sidewalk. Apparently, the woman on the scooter had bumped the key and shut the scooter off and was too panicked to realize it. Once she settled herself she tried the key and it worked.
“The woman that stopped was pleasant and cheery and simply said “I better get my car out of the street”. We said goodbye and the three of us parted ways.
“It was heartwarming to such an act of caring. There really are a lot of good people out there.”
I agree, Dennis. Thank you for being one of them.
