I Helped Out A Stranger In A Snowstorm

AuthorRichard Zaher

During a Snowstorm in Loundon County, Virginia, I got on the road looking for people who needed help. That's when I met Jeremy. His car slipped and crashed into the median; its axle and wheel were broken.

Jeremy wasn’t injured, but we had to clear the slippery road to prevent other accidents and get him safely to his family. So I suggested towing his car and taking him home. In the 30 minutes we spoke, he left the impression of a kind and hard-working man. I decided to help him more. Snowstorm with Jeremy 2

We agreed to meet at the Loudon Auto Repair the following day. I came that morning ready to support Jeremy in any way I could. The mechanic said it would cost $1,000 to fix the car. So I offered to cover the entire amount since he needs the car for everyday work on a long commute. Jeremy was very grateful and inspired to pass on kind acts to others.

I now feel in my heart that I have to go out there, find someone and help them.
