Random acts of kindness
there were five of us pushing the old beast up the incline and out of traffic, all of us in the close-to-retirement bracket.
Mission accomplished, they all went back to their vehicles and on with their day.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the generous gentlemen who helped a stranger in a moment of need. A lot of the news focuses on the unpleasant things that happen in our city, but an experience like this is a powerful reminder that we are surrounded by good people who are willing to help when they can.
And this column is a wonderful antidote to the front page. I am thrilled to be able to report another Random Acts of Kindness sighting. We may have a reputation as the crime capitol of the country, but I think we need to give the heroes equal time. cashier for me.
Thank you, sir, your simple act brightened my day. MY husband was walking on Taylor Avenue recently. He is 87 years old, very unsteady on his feet and not supposed to be out alone.
The sidewalk is very uneven and he slipped and was trapped between the fence and the jagged sidewalk and could not get up.
Thank you to everyone who came to help.
First the young lady who thought it was a mannequin laying there until she saw a sign of movement. Next another young lady who stopped to help and stayed as they tried to flag down a motorist.
I am so sorry, but in all the confusion I forgot your names.
Thank you so much. If you hadn’t stopped to help my husband might have lain there for a long time.
Thank you, Christina, for calling the paramedics and also phoning me to let me know where my husband was.
Thank you, Alan, for the loan of the towel.
Lastly thanks to the paramedics who transported my husband to hospital.
I’m happy to say my husband had no broken bones, just a lot of bruising and very sore ribs.
We are both so grateful to everyone.
