The other day we were on the first floor when the fire alarm went off in the university building. One of the students was on a wheelchair, and I instantly thought, oh we could not use the lifts. I have never faced this situation before.
I made sure everyone left the classroom and then went near the stairs to see what the next step would be. To my pleasant surprise, my other students showed immense kindness. Along with a stranger who was passing by, they got together to set up the evac chair, and with a few guys, we managed to lift her down the stairs. It was a very complex and slow process as it was new to most of us! But no one gave up. The willingness which these young people showed such tremendous kindness deeply touched me. They did not stop to wonder about their safety in case a fire broke out. Although it turned out to be a false fire alarm, it gave me great faith in the future of humanity.
Young people are always willing to help, we must believe in them. Kindness is everywhere.
