Generous Strangers

Editor: I would like to use your pages to thank the couple who spent 40 minutes helping me to get my car out of the snow. They refused to give up even when it seemed impossible and disappeared before I could thank them properly. In what is often a lonely or hostile city, it is rare to find people who give generously of their time -- especially to strangers -- and such experiences give hope for the future!
