I have been fortunate to experience many acts of kindness, but will tell you a short story of when I was about 14 years old. My friend and I took a bus into the city, and there were two slightly older girls sitting behind us. Once we got off the bus, they followed us and stopped us to ask for directions. Within seconds they were threatening us. Since we were in the middle of the city, people were walking by but no one seemed to notice our situation… except a gentleman who was standing outside of his store. He yelled out to see if we were okay and told those girls to disappear. He then invited us into his shop to wait there as long as we needed or wanted. There is no telling what would have happened if he had not noticed us.
