driving out to g'mas. we saw a man walking along the road on crutches. dad gave him a lift. we stopped along the way to have a bite to eat. the man was a korean war vet and had fallen on hard times. he was on his way to a veterans hospital. dad bought his ticket at the bus station. gave him some 'folding money' and thanked him for his service to our country. we never spoke about it again. it was a valuable lessen. help others.

Was at a grocerystore,liquorstore,gas station combination once and this fairly unkempt woman came up to me and asked for gas money ($5). Told her to pull over to the pump and I'd put some gas in her car,when she pulled up she had 3 kids with her and they all looked hard up,put in $10 gas and the wife was talking to the woman,she and the kids were left by the dead beat dad.We dont know her whole story but my wife sliped her another $20. Maybe we got took maybe not,but it made us feel good to maybe help someone who needed help.
Yep you sometimes have to take a chance on people and the money will not make or break us.

I just got back from the grocery store. This country is in dire need of an injection of manners and common courtesy. Everybody seems so tense. If you do a small kind deed people look at you like what is your problem/what do you want. Slow down people life will come to you fast enough. If you are running for the next dollar maybe we should reanalyze our positions.

jfky...that is why I enjoy living in a small farming town...the pace is always slow and easy....folks are well mannered and raising their kids that way too....I'll never be considered "rich" cuz of my business in town but I don't have hyper-tension up the kazoo either. :^)

"Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you." It just doesn't work these days. But..I treat everybody with the respect and dignity that they deserve until they donot show it back. I was brought up by the "Golden Rule" and raise my kids by it. Just a shame that everybody doesn't.

Know what yur sayin, Mud, Eb, also find it very strange when you are tryin' ta help someone, that the bystanders will look down their snoots at ya like yer off strange street.....tell ya, I have made some powerful good friends with just a bit of kindness....

my daughter who was 7 at the time were along side the road in our broke down car in the winter, a couple of cars drove right past us, she shouted after them "i hope you know Jesus saw you do that." when a very nice obviously busy man took the time to give us a ride all the way home, she said to him "thank-you and Jesus saw you do that."
