Thanks for showing concern for stranded driver
With the recent headline "Good Samaritan, gone bad," I wanted to share an experience that restored my faith in the goodness of people.
I was driving home during one of our many snow storms, and due to the poor visibility missed the turn into my neighborhood and drove off the road. After several attempts to back out, I realized that I was stuck. I called my son, who was on his way to help his mom dig her car out.
Many cars drove by and pulled into the neighborhood but did not offer assistance. Then a woman with long blonde hair stopped, rolled her window down and asked if I was OK. I assured her I was fine and that help was on its way but thanked her profusely for her kindness and concern. Then a black truck pulled into the street and stopped. A nice man got out and said, "Would you like a push? Doesn't look like you are hung up too badly."
This kind man pushed for all he was worth and I was able to back out and get home safely. I thanked him and he got into his truck, turned around and left. He did not even live in our neighborhood but had turned in just to help me. His kindness touched my heart. Thanks to both kind individuals who helped and showed concern for a stranded driver. I will pay it forward.
