Good Samaritan

offsets bad news

Despite the frequency of crime, drugs and violence in the area, good Samaritans still appear here.

On Sunday, my daughter and her two teenage sons went with me to Wegmans. After we finished shopping, we went to the car only to find one very flat tire.

I got the spare “donut” from the back of the station wagon after one grandson moved all the groceries so we could reach it; the other grandson began to remove the flat tire. Suddenly, a young man in a Jeep pulled up beside us, left his wife or girlfriend in his vehicle and got out to help us with the tire, proceeding much more quickly than we had managed.

When he finished the job, he warned us about not going too fast with the spare, jumped back into the Jeep and refused to take any money for his services.

I didn’t ask his name, but I hope he reads this letter so that I can share my appreciation for his assistance. Yes, we still have many good folks in this area who go out of their way to help others!
