Thank you so much to Abby M. (’16) for sharing the story below. With so much happening in the news to make us question our faith in humanity, stories like this remind us that the world is made up of good people – people who are willing to drop everything and help others.
“Once upon a time, a girl was in a wheelchair. It was raining really hard, and the girl was having a hard time steering her wheelchair. She was trying to get to her class, was running late, and almost rolled off the sidewalk. Suddenly, a guy who saw her and asked if she needed help. She said yes, and he pushed her all the way to her class, even though they had never met before.
This was me today. To the guy who helped me, Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I’m super sorry I didn’t get your name, but I want to tell you that you have given me hope for the human race. This is why I love Carthage. ♥”
So totally and incredibly awesome.
