Opinion: Anonymous good Samaritans helped elderly driver
I want to say thank you to several people who I don’t even know, men who have chosen to remain anonymous, men who went above and beyond to be kind to others.
Thursday morning, March 24, my 84-year-old mom experienced an adverse drug reaction while driving through Middlebury. When she stopped at a red light, two men got out of their car(s) and told Mom she was driving erratically, and that she needs to park her car. They proceeded to phone 911, Mom was taken to Porter Hospital, and she recovered.
Had those two angels not taken the time and the effort to care about my Mom (and others on the road), the end result may have been very different. Thank you, gentlemen, for genuinely caring and then acting. You rendered assistance in the most perfect, kind way.
Also, the previous Sunday, March 20, Mom and I enjoyed breakfast at The Diner in Middlebury, which was nearly full at the time. Toward the end of our meal, we were told that a gentleman who had just left had paid for everyone’s meal who was eating there at that time. And he wanted to remain anonymous. What a wonderful, generous random act of kindness. He sure did put a smile on my face and warmed my heart.
This world needs a lot more of these kinds of people, for sure. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I truly appreciate you all.
