Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Two In A Taxi For Four


--by heartofflesh, posted Oct 15, 2013
The "share-taxi" normally wouldn't have left until it had four paying passengers in it. The only other passenger was a lady who seemed to be in quite a hurry, so I agreed to pay the remaining fares and got in.

Her mother had suffered a heart attack and this lady was going to collect her and take her to hospital. She started chatting, telling me how her two elder sisters do not care for her mother. She does all she can for her mother while having a husband and two children to look after. 

She had just pawned her jewels in order to raise money in a hurry.

She was glad to have someone to talk to until we reached her destination. I wished her well and said a silent prayer.

Even though the lady's two elder sisters did not care for their mother, your little act of kindness would have surely given her immense strength and hope to cope with her situation. Thank you for doing this for the troubled lady.
