Today (1/25 5:00pm) waiting for my bus home (the Union Station- Georgetown circulator) I noticed a homeless woman talking to a man with a MAGA hat on at the bus stop. (First thought: oh jeez a trump supporter.)The bus comes, and all of the sudden the man is talking to the bus driver, explaining how this woman in from North Carolina, lost her phone, and needs to take the bus, but doesn’t have money. (Second thought: he’s getting scammed). He then helped the lady onto the bus, loaded ALL of her heavy suitcases and bags onto the seats, AND physically lifted her into the seat.
Politics and scams aside, you can’t help but smile at someone genuinely caring and showing compassion for a stranger.”
