I have to tell this story because it verifies my belief that there are a lot of people out there who are kind and giving. The news media doesn’t uphold this view and I’m here to go up against what they propagate on a daily basis.
Day after day all you ever see are murders, rapes, guns, gang wars. Need I say more? What I do now is turn on the news and wait for the weather then turn it off. Actually watching the weather can be almost as hair raising – hurricanes and tornadoes and death. Good Godfrey! Gimme a break.
Well, I have a nice story:
I left my car at the smog station and walked home. When the car was ready I rode my bicycle to pick up my vehicle. As I struggled to get my beach cruiser in the back of the Yukon, realizing I was doing “something” wrong because it wouldn’t fit, I heard a voice. I looked out the back doors of my SUV and there was a guy in a car stopped in the street with two sleeping toddlers in the back seat. “Do you need some help?” he asked. My eyes literally grew wide with surprise and I said, “Uh, yeah.” He made an illegal u-turn, parked in the street with his flashers on, got out of his car and walked over to the back of my car, lifted the bike in and walked away. I said “thank you” several times and he said, “No problem”.
Say what? I drove away, shaking my head and smiling.
