On a recent trip to the new library, I found a good parking place so I took it and parked my car. I took enough change for the meter, I thought, but found the meters in that area require a bit more change. So, I went back to my car, entered from the passenger side and found my little black purse which held my change. As I backed out of the car, somehow my feet slipped and I ended flat on my back on the concrete and the curb.
As I was trying to regain my balance, a young man driving down the street saw me fall, stopped his car and came running to help me. He picked me up and held me steady while I regained my balance and then stayed for a few minutes to make sure I was all right. I do not know the man's name, but I certainly thank him. We hear constantly about those who commit crimes or hurt someone, but this man deserves thanks from me and the community for his kindness. I certainly wish him the best and would like his employer and friends to know what an outstanding citizen he is.
