Yesterday I was walking down 23rd Street. I watched a waiter from a diner exit the diner holding the arm of an older woman walking with a cane. I watched him carefully help her across a busy cross street.
They were masked, and I get that they weren’t socially distanced exactly, but I didn’t care. it was a moment of one person helping another.
I haven’t seen much human kindness lately, in a time when it should be abounding.
I am grateful for having witnessed this one seemingly insignificant act of kindness.
Maybe there is hope…
