A lot of you read my post that I submitted in to the Mississauga News for the kind man that helped me when my car caught on fire. After I had posted this article to my facebook page, I had a couple of people comment and tell me their personal stories of other good samaritans that came to their rescue.
After reading those stories, I couldnt help but feel inspired from these acts of kindness because I find that in the world we live in there is so much noise and negativity and not enough "thank yous" or positive messages and you start to feel that there is nothing good in the world.
Here are a couple of my own personal stories that I would like to share:
Just Last Month Allan and I were in the Superstore close to our house and their was an older gentleman in front of us who was struggling to pack his grocery bags. We helped him pack them and carry them to his car, he thanked us profusely and I left feeling wonderful that I had taken the couple of minutes to help someone.
Over a year ago Allan and I were in a car accident that totalled my car, we were ok but my car was a write off. We were amazed by the amount of people who wanted to help out in case we needed witnesses. One guy drove the lady who hit us home to get her husband and then he stayed with us for 2 hours until the cops came, to tell them his account of the accident, we were amazed that he would stay until 12-1am in the middle of a snowstorm to make sure that we received the justice we deserved.
I open the forum to hear from everyone about their experiences with good samaritans so we can share with each other the goodness that there really is in the world. I cherish these stories as I will go back to them whenever I am feeling discouraged and look to them to empower me and surge forward.
If I can help anyone in any way, by connecting you to someone in my network, or promote you or your company through my blog, facebook, twitter and Linked In page please let me know, I only ask for a cut of the profits......LOL just kidding!
