Thoughtful help

To the editor:

The 4th of July, I attended the matinee showing of “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” After purchasing my senior ticket, I discovered that the theater at Liberty Hall was up a flight of many steps. I managed well enough climbing the steps.

After the movie was finished, I waited until most of the theatergoers had left. As I was going down the steps, my arthritic legs moved rather slowly. I stepped aside at the landing to let those behind me go past. A very friendly voice said, “We’re in no hurry; take your time!”

The woman went ahead of me a step and invited me to put my hand on her shoulder to steady myself. When we were down the steps and to the door, she said, “Ill walk you to your car.” I said it was only half a block, I would be all right. She insisted on going with me and I thanked her for the concern, consideration and kindness.

I wish I had asked her name so I could write a note to further thank the lovely lady.

We can safely assume this is not, OldSoul/ socialintelligencecounts/ goodcountrypeople/begin60/ or equalaccessprivacy. He thinks all people that try to help you are terrorists trying to assault you and you should be arrested if not worse. It is good to know most people appreciate an offer for help. Kudos to the lady that offered to help for realizing the writer probably didn't want to be a burden to anybody but really would appreciate the help.

Where do you get the idea that she sought a reward. I'm sure she meant for her actions to be self fulfilling. It is NOT better that her name is not known. Mentioning her name would have been public recognition well deserved.

Good things happen some time and it is better than her name is not known, it reflects on her a lot better. To do a good deed is good, to do a good deed and seek reward takes away from the deed. Mentioning her name would have been a reward.
