“The kindness of this complete stranger floored me.”

“Dear PoPville,

While I was running this morning, I got hit by a car. She didn’t see me at an intersection. I am banged up but nothing terrible. I’m writing you because I hope the people who helped me will read this. A woman running as well (she introduced herself as Gigi) turned around and scooped me up off the ground. She hugged me so hard and just let me cry on her. The kindness of this complete stranger floored me. She is an incredible human, and we need more of her in this world. Several others stopped to help. One woman called my husband and gave me her coat, another rushed to her house to get blankets. It’s easy to get caught up in the political gloom that looms over our city right now, but there are good, actually great, individuals out there, and I am so thankful some of them were there to help me out this morning.”
