The Cops Are At It Again on Nice on the ‘Net Saturday

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23182 – 1146

I haven’t done one of these in a while and I really enjoy doing them. This is a very simple story of someone just being nice.

Here’s the Haps:

An older blind woman was at Penn Station and asked someone to help her get some food and coffee because she was feeling a bit weak and faint. She was told, “That’s not my job.”

This young gentleman approached her and asked if he could help her with something, gave her his arm, and helped her navigate to the Dunkin’ Donuts so she could get her food and coffee.

That’s it. That’s the whole story. Someone may think that that isn’t much but I think it was something nice for someone to do and I’m glad somebody witnessed it.

  1. It is good that the young man guided the woman to the place to get her donuts and coffee …but there is a higher demand to that righteous calling — If the young man had the means, he would also have bought the coffee and donuts for the woman .. either way his heart is right and The Lord saw it and honored it with some kind of blessing somewhere down the road ..Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my bretheren, ye have done it unto me.” (Jesus Christ, The Lord.)
    Great and inspiring story, Herb– thanks for sharing it.

  2. Cops get such a bad rap today, it’s good to see one being recognized for his kindness. There are plenty more where he came from.
