Faith in human kindness renewed

Good people. I didn’t get your names, but to all the people that helped me when my car stopped running at the Bell Road and Highway 80 turnoff last Friday, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

To the two guys who pushed my car off the road, thank you. To the three ”Charlie’s Angels” who made sure my elderly passenger was moved to their air-conditioned car and taken safely to her daughter, thank you.

To the gentleman who checked under the hood and waited until AAA had loaded up the car, thank you.

To the AAA guy who made sure I got into his air-conditioned cab and got water, thank you.

It was a day when your faith in human kindness was renewed. I didn’t get your names, but just know you are all special people.
