LETTERS: Cellphone sprint an ‘amazing act of kindness’


I just wanted to share something that happened on my way to work this morning because I think that with all of the sadness and fear we read about every day it’s too often that we forget about all of the good in the world.

I was on my way to work and transferring buses when I realized, after the bus had left, that I didn’t have my phone with me.

I started rummaging through my bag and a man at the bus stop asked me if it was my card I was looking for.

“No, my phone!”

He told me to watch his bag and wait and he sprinted across the street and down a block or two. He came back, out of breath and with my phone.

I didn’t even know how to thank him, such an amazing act of kindness without even thinking about it.

He was on his way to work and catching up with the bus to retrieve my phone made him late for work.

I am so thankful for this.

Alice Hudon, White Rock
