Crossing the Road
I was pulling out of a shopping center on a hot summer afternoon at a busy six lane intersection. The light turned green but nobody was moving. I looked ahead and see a very small older woman in a traditional wheelchair trying to push her way across the crosswalk. She was in trouble. Before I could do anything, a homeless man rode up on a bicycle, left it on a corner and helped push her across the street. He left the most valuable thing he owned help a stranger. You know what else? Nobody honked. There is an old punchline about crossing the road to get to the other side. With enough patience and compassion we will all help each other get to the other side.
