Small Gesture On The Train
--by purplefrenzy, posted Jun 7, 2007
After spending a lovely day in London with a friend, I was on the 40 min train journey home retracing the day I had just had.
It was rush hour and the train was crowded but across the isle, I saw a lady looking quite flustered and upset. I felt very concious as I kept looking over at her and she kept catching me looking.
In the end, I couldn't help myself and ask, "Are you okay?" Tears fell down her face and she simply replied "Oh thank you for asking! I am alright. Honestly. I've just had a very bad day, but it is so nice that you took the time to ask and have made me feel a little better knowing there are kind people out there in this world."
It wasnt much of a gesture but I felt I had done a little to ease her pain with my little gesture.
