Kindness of strangers restores faith
Let me thank all those people who helped me on Sunday, August 26, when I had a fall while walking along The Avenue in Warnbro.
I must have tripped over my own big feet and I fell face-first onto the concrete, which even my hard head could not withstand.
I am not young, 76-years-old, and am very appreciative indeed of all the people who came to my assistance.
They came from their houses, and cars stopped and very kindly brought blankets and tissues, and waited till the ambulance, which they had called, arrived.
Thanks are also due to the paramedics and the emergency department at Rockingham General Hospital. The ED was very busy indeed but I was seen fairly quickly and dealt with with care and attention.
After all the bad stories one hears in the media, this can restore one’s faith in people’s kindness for a stranger.
