Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Yesterday I Went For ...


--by SissyLee, posted Mar 22, 2020
Yesterday I went for a walk on the empty streets and headed for the bakery nearby as they are serving out a window during this pandemic. On my way there, on a hot sidewalk corner, I found a man overdosing. He was emaciated, shaking, and had a bump on his head and was surrounded by lighters.
I did not bring my phone. The bakery called a local street unit called Cahoots to come help him. I went back to wait by the man.
As I waited, another women stopped by in her car and got out to see if she could help. Turns out she had been a patient of mine years ago and now will come back after the pandemic passes. As we stood there, a nurse walked by, not with Cahoots. She took his pulse and asked him various questions. He could say his name but that was it.
Cahoots arrived and he refused help and managed to get up and totter away.
It was such an intense series of connections and care.
I came home and played my harp in the backyard.
