Trying not to take for granted

Editor:

So many thanks to the wonderful lady and older couple who stopped to assist me when my friend tumbled backwards in his wheelchair.

So many thanks to the wonderful lady and older couple who stopped to assist me when my friend tumbled backwards in his wheelchair.

We were in the parking lot of the White Rock Medical Clinic and he was lying on the cold, wet pavement, unable to get back into his chair.

Unfortunately, they all left before we could thank them properly.

This is a wonderful place we live in. Since he has been in a chair, I have witnessed many acts of kindness. I truly hope I always acknowledge them but realize there are many instances when, possibly in a hurry, we might take these for granted.

It made me stop and think just how much humankind needs each other.
