Stories of Kindness from Around the World

the Metro


--by Brian DeGross, posted May 14, 2006
While I was on a campus abroad program in Paris, I frequented the Metro as means of travel. One day I was with a group of friends, and we had just arrived at our stop. As i headed up the stairs, I noticed an older gentleman with an obviously heavy suitcase. I had already made it up the top of the cumbersome flight of steps but felt the need to help. I took his suitcase for him all the way down the stairs, making sure he made it down safely as well and ensured that both he and his suitcase made it safely onto the train.

Sometimes kindness lies in the simple, little things of life.
