The Peach Lady Of Marseilles
--by petroskryf, posted Feb 19, 2019
At a marketplace in town, I saw an unfamiliar peach variety that is not available in my country. I decided to buy only one peach to find out what it tastes like.
A Muslim woman, Feiza, who was also in the shop, then came forward and insisted on gifting me four of those strange, flat peaches!
Feiza's unexpected kindness was a magical moment in our day. While police walk around in crowded tourist spots to protect people against possible harm, a local women shared her genuine kindness, almost on the spur of the moment, to built trust and bridges between people.
Feiza, I my never see you again, but I will never forget you or that soft, plump peaches with the rosy cheeks.
