Shoutout to Those that Help Others, Just Because
I saw the post about doing something positive, and I couldn’t help but remember a time a couple years back that a young woman with dark curly hair bought a bottle of water for a lady that was getting sick in a garbage can outside of the old Kingsway Transit Centre. I was standing within hearing distance, and I heard them talking. Turns out that the woman we all thought was drunk was just actually really sick with the flu and had no other way to go get food donations for her kids downtown. I felt terrible about the jokes I had laughed at that people were making about the “old drunk”. The young woman sat down with the lady and helped hold her hair back when she got sick once more until the right bus came. That always stood out in my mind. There are angels among us who don’t care if someone is a drunk or not… They just care for everyone without question. I try to remember to do the same ever since.
