Thanks to ‘Good Sa­mar­i­tan’

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

To­day was my day off and I had to drive my son’s truck up to the me­chanic to be checked out for an ig­ni­tion prob­lem. On the way to the me­chanic, the truck stalled at the in­ter­sec­tion of Vi­vian Adams Drive and Route 5 in Wal­dorf dur­ing the late-morn­ing rush hour.

With failed at­tempts at restart­ing the truck, a gen­tle­man be­hind me left his Ford Cross­over ve­hi­cle to as­sist me. He an­gled his car like po­lice of­fi­cers do at a traf­fic stop and he also put safety lights on top of his car. Al­though he was dressed in nice work clothes, he of­fered to push my truck off the road and into a nearby park­ing lot. The gen­tle­man then rushed back to get his car and I as­sumed he headed to work.

I was only able to ob­tain his last name be­fore he left. I would like to thank you Mr. Gre­gory for as­sist­ing me, by safely alert­ing the on­com­ing traf­fic to my stalled truck and push­ing my ve­hi­cle to a safe area. Your ef­fort and good deed does not go un­no­ticed.

I thank God for this “Good Sa­mar­i­tan” and pray his ex­am­ple will spur oth­ers to “do to oth­ers as you would have them do to you.”
