Everyday angel

December 15, 2005


To the editor:

Last Friday, I got my shopping cart stuck in the snow behind Babcock Place, where I live. Out of nowhere came this wonderful lady with a darling child on her back and helped me push the cart on through the snow. I have back problems and couldn't push the cart out.

I thanked her but didn't get her name. She was surely my angel sent to help me. Thank you, angel.

What's weird about it? Newspapers all over the country always have "good samaritan" letters like this from people that want to express their gratitude and inform others that there are still some people out there willing to help someone out.

Do you think it's weird that the auther isn't using this as an opportunity to push either a far right or far left agenda? Oh wait... He does refer to her as an angel. So obviously he is pushing his far right narrow minded religious dogma on everyone else! Guess it's not so weird now after all.

Everyone get your guns!

Seriously, ReachAround, be nice.

This person was elderly (living at Babcock Place--senior apartments), and bringing home groceries in a cart from the Dillon's next door, and likely got the cart stuck in a pile of snow from someone's snow plow.

I, for one, am glad to be part of a culture that is still willing to help out older folks when they get stuck in a bind.

meant to say "likely bringing home groceries..."

I wasn't there, but that's what I'd guess.
