A Complete Stranger Saved This Mom and Her Four Kids but Wanted One Major Thing in Return



Quote:
After Tawny Nelson's car broke down at night in the pouring rain with her four young daughters crying in the back, countless people just drove by as she begged for help.

The single mother of four explained that things had been rough since her partner left - her vehicle was in such bad shape that she only drove if absolutely necessary and her cell phone was disconnected. She and her children desperately needed groceries so they made a quick trip to the store. However, one of her girls accidentally left a light on in the car and they returned to a completely drained battery. "I must have asked more than twenty people in the course of two hours for a jump," she wrote to Frank Somerville, which he shared on his Facebook page. "They all ignored me. Not even a no. [They] just acted like I didn't exist."

As her newborn screamed, her 2-year-old cried from hunger, and her 9-year-old desperately tried to help, Tawny described that she started to break down herself. "I was bawling and felt like the worst Mom ever," she recalled.

At that moment, a 74-year-old man with a bad limp knocked on the window. He handed her a plate of food and bottles of water for her family and let her know that a tow truck was on its way and that his wife was going to drive them home. The next day, the gentleman returned to her house with a mechanic and they made multiple repairs to her car.

After the kind stranger left, Tawny asked the mechanic if she could set up a payment plan, but he informed her that the man had already taken care of the bill.

"He said that the only payment the older man wanted was for me to never give up and keep being an amazing mom," Tawny wrote. "I've never cried so hard in my life. Things had been absolutely awful, more so than I care to explain, and without knowing us or our situation this kind man helped us in ways he will never know."

Tawny is grateful to the man for restoring her faith in humanity when she says she was falling apart. And while she knows that she can never repay him - he wouldn't even take a hug - she hopes to one day do for another what he did for her.

Isn't that something any normal person should agree with? That doesn't seem the kind of thing that deserves a pat on the back.

Yo.

that he's doing OVER THERE, rather than someplace less openly hostile towards other cultures, makes it worthy in my book.....

That is literally applicable to every submission in this thread.

I don't know. Someone who is just saying "let's not kill each other" is not quite the equivalent of people who pull babies from fire, take a bullet for a stranger or give all their wealth to the homeless. However, I would agree with Tazer that even the simple message "let's not kill each other" can be more impressive in a place where that is not the norm.

You get what I'm saying!

That said, if it's impressive to say something any normal human would say, it says a lot about what kind of people live there.

Antonio Meucci, not Alexander Graham Bell, invented the telephone, Congress rules

Found this on the front page of reddit. Very surprising, but great to know he's finally being given his due.

^That's funny. I just re-watched Godfather III the other night and in it Joey Zasa gives Michael the Meucci award and explains about him beating out Bell.

I was on the highway tonight in Mass, and there was a cruiser with his lights on driving in the right lane at about 5mph, slowing down traffic. As I got in the passing lane and passed him along with the other vehicles, I saw why he was doing it. There was about ten ducklings trapped on the traffic side of the concrete barrier line, and he was giving them a police escort to the next opening to get them out safely.
