This sort of reminds me of the Parable of the 'Good Samaratin', the everyday doing what should part of our lives, is and isn't always part of it. I read some of the comments, and some of them are really unkind. Just the way people have changed today. Many have beome HARD-HEARTED.........
Video is an eye opener to some, and is ho-hum to others. We have a heart that was given to us to be either hard or soft, we all know what it is.

I think I need to go back to Grump School and take a refresher course.

This video exemplifies the maxim by which I have always tried to live: One man can make a difference.

Want to see an immediate example of that in action. It's so simple really. The next time you are in bumper to bumper traffic and there is a line of cars waiting to enter your stream, just stop and let a car enter, then proceed. Now watch in your mirror and see what the people behind you do. Nine times out of ten they will follow your lead and continue this courtesy.

That's kind of a pedestrian example, but one which demonstrates the truth of that saying. One need not strive to change the world in order to make the lives of others.

Just one step at a time, one person at a time, one day at a time.

Make the world better for just one person tomorrow and watch them pay it forward.

It works.

A blessed holiday season to all.

Chain reaction, one good deed deserves another...

i've been wondering, is pity a good thing or a bad thing?

I took note of what you wrote, Richard, and when I went shopping today I paused to allow other traffic to enter the stream, and had other drivers do the same for me. It was all very pleasant and civilized.
