We Get By with a Little Help

Today I ran into a pregnant woman on the street who confided that her mother had died in the hospital today, and her mother’s car was about to be towed and she needed money to buy gas in a container from the gas station to put in the car to drive it to her own home. I walked with this woman to my apartment and would have driven her to the gas station and back if I had a car. I can only hope she was able to move the car in time.

This was a well-to-do woman who needed some help — I’m very glad I was able to help a little, but it’s also an important reminder that we’re conditioned to help people that are similar to us, especially socioeconomically, and part of kindness and change is sharing and giving to anyone and everyone — especially those truly in need. Kindness can’t have boundaries.

Dont cry, dont cry, Theresa FairLady tells Tammy Horsley, whose dog, Zeus, she saved from being put to sleep.

PORT RICHEY — The woman seemed to appear out of nowhere. One minute, Justine Parnell was in the parking lot, sobbing a howl reserved for life-breaking moments.
