Acts of Compassion

Acts of Compassion

On Wednesday, January 23/2019 at approximately 9:00am, my Wife and I decided to go for a morning walk. We had not gone far from our apartment block, when my Wife slipped on a piece of snow-covered ice. She fell hard on her right shoulder. Since we were holding on to each other, we both went down.
A young man who was crossing the street witnessed the mishap and came running to assist us. In no time there were at least four other women there to assist as well.
One of the women offered to take us to hospital. I thanked her, but asked her if she would instead stay with my Wife. All the women stayed with her while I retrieved my vehicle.
My Wife and I did not know any of the people that stopped to help us. Two of these women had cars which they had parked along the busy street.
To those kind people, who took the time to help two seniors in their time of need, I want you to know that your acts of compassion and kindness are greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. You know who you are, God bless you.
My wife suffered a broken humerus as a result of the fall and is slowly recuperating. The selfless deeds of these strangers greatly alleviated what was a traumatic event. It confirms the goodness of people in the Sudbury area.
