I usually keep some food in the car to donate at traffic stops. Two days ago, I was waiting at the signal, and I saw a homeless person on a wheelchair. I was a few cars away from him and thinking about what I should do. It was dark, and there was a long line of cars behind me. I put the hazard signal on and with the food in my hands ran to the man in the wheelchair; he was very grateful. The lights changed to green, and the traffic started moving. The cars behind me saw me running back and forth and patiently waited while I ran back to my car and drove through the signal. I felt we all participated in this act of giving — I with food and others through patience. Even though most wanted to hurry back to their warm home after a day’s work, they waited. Thank you all my fellow commuters.
People are usually kind and will support you in any way they can.
