LETTERS: So much compassion


On Wednesday, Sept, 7 near the corner of 16 Avenue and Johnston Road, I suffered a bad fall which resulted in a broken kneecap.


On Wednesday, Sept, 7 near the corner of 16 Avenue and Johnston Road, I suffered a bad fall which resulted in a broken kneecap and subsequent surgery.

I was incapable of moving and stunned by the accident.

A few passersby were kind enough to stop and ask how I was; one lady called the ambulance and waited for it to arrive; another lady stood behind me to support my back; a lady who knew reiki massage had me cradle my knee to keep it warm; and a man who runs our local Rialto Theatre recognized me and very kindly stopped to talk to me and keep me company until the EMT arrived. There were others, too.

I cannot thank all of these great people enough for their compassion caring and concern.
