  1. I read this story earlier. I wish more people were like this lovely woman who helped a total stranger. That’s the true meaning of character, helping another person without expecting anything in return.

      I believe more people are like this woman and that only a small fraction of the love in action is ever reported. I don’t blame the media because if all the good news and kindness stories were reported, there would be so many that they would stop being “news”. Thank you for your comment.

  2. Thank you for sharing it
