Light in the Darkness

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!
I was reading a local bi-weekly newspaper Sunday afternoon & when I got to the letters to the editor, I knew I'd found my submission for today. 

A woman wrote a letter that started w/ the following sentence...
"My faith in my fellow man has been restored." 

She went on explain that she'd fallen & broken her leg while pumping gas. She was soon surrounded by customers helping in any way they could. Someone called a squad, another took the gas pump from her car, & several women stayed w/ her offering moral support. Once the medics came, she was pleased w/ their compassion, competence, & efficiency, going out of their way to make things as easy as possible for her. 

What a wonderful story, full of many people taking time out to assist someone in need! I'm also happy that she was willing to share her story w/ the public. Too many people these days are willing to share bad experiences, but not the good ones.

Great story! Can you imagine what that poor woman went through? Love this meme!
I posted mine yesterday by mistake! Pre-posted it and got mixed up on dates!
God bless!
