I had my faith in people restored today. My wife and I are both physically handicapped. To look at us, you cannot see it.|
Our usual bus broke down, so she and I waited in the cold for an hour. Metrolink sent a small bus to pick people up.
We own a large cart we use for groceries and stuff. I was unable to get the cart onto the bus, so we were asked to wait. The van pulled up five or six feet and stopped. Two passengers got off the bus, a large man and a smaller woman, to help us get the cart on the bus. Believe me, it was really heavy. But they didn't think anything of helping two strangers in their time of need.
The man got off the bus at his stop; we thanked him for his help.
At our stop, two small women picked it up and off the bus for us. We couldn't thank these strangers enough.
I hope you print this and people read it. In my heart, I feel these people were heroes in their unselfish acts of kindness.
