We’ve asked for your sto­ries re­gard­ing what you feel have been acts of kind­ness in your life. Here is one of those sto­ries:

With all the talk in the news about road rage and man’s in­hu­man­ity to man, I’d like to share an ex­pe­ri­ence my wife and I had, show­ing how gen­er­ous peo­ple re­ally can be.

We were re­turn­ing from Jor­dan River when our tire blew.

Af­ter re­al­iz­ing that we were in a no-phone-re­cep­tion zone and no ac­cess to BCAA, we started to feel iso­lated.

Within a short time, not one but two cars stopped to help. Many many thanks to Paul and Mar­i­anne and Steve and Tara. You were so kind and thought­ful.
