Heroes on a winter’s day
I WAS coming home from work — in what turned out to be a blizzard — turning off Inkster Boulevard at the Rosser turn-off to get on to the Perimeter Highway. The snow was so thick coming around the bend, I couldn’t make out where the road was and became stuck. People would come up behind me, see I was stuck and just turn around and go the other way. Finally, my hero arrived. He was alone and proceeded to shovel as best he could. But I was stuck in a lot of snow. A few other young men arrived and with the four of them pushing, after about 20 minutes, they were finally able to free me. I was out the snow and pulled over at the top of the turnoff. I wanted to express my gratitude to them, but they had all but vanished. Unbelievable how generous they were with their time and energy to help me. I am forever grateful to these wonderful men. They know who they are. Faith restored. MY car got stuck on Young Street. I was rushing to go to my class but couldn’t move the car. There was a man with his daughter who came and asked me, “Are you stuck?” When I said yes, he asked me to straighten my wheels on the car and he lifted it from the front and I was able to get it out. Sorry I didn’t get his name but I want to thank him so much for helping me out on a very cold day.
