Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Giving a Lift to a Nurse


--by deploy, posted Nov 9, 2008

Walking alongside a  lady in her late 20's on my way to work the other day, I asked her to join me and catch the micro-bus to the city centre.  She was coming from an all-night shift and told me she was a Nurse Assistant. She told me that  she walks into town as she cannot afford the fare.  When I thought about it, I realized that meant she had to walk 10kms!

I quickly told her that I would pay her fare. She was very amazed and grateful .So, we waited for the bus  to pick us up and fortunately a friend  of mine  stopped and gave us a free lift, so I didn't even have to pay for her or myself.

When we got into the city centre my friend dropped us off. The lady said thank you to me and said may your act of kindness be trebled too ... i shared a tear of joy and felt very happy, very happy inside me ... I never felt this way before.
