 A few weeks ago, my cousin was walking me across  the street to her car and
she was rushing me to cross the intersection.  I tripped and fell in the
middle of the street.  A very nice lady and her son ran to my rescue.  They
helped me get up and walked me to see if I was alright. assisted me into my
cousins car.  I was so grateful.  God is always good!

Subject: [Ohio-talk] Story about blind man on WLWT

I tried to send a link so people could watch this article. An employee from
Clovernook was crossing at an intersection recently. A 12 year old student
offered to help him and the blind man accepted the help even though he
crosses this intersection regularly. Apparently, someone took a picture and
posted it to Facebook and it went viral. 2 television stations came out and
interviewed the blind man and the student. First, I think it is great that
the young man offered to help. I am concerned that the blind man said
something to the effect that he never turned down help when offered because
he might need help and people might not offer. I also have a problem with it
going viral. I found out about the report from Carlton Walker who works at
the national office. People helping each other isn't anything new. I hope we
all accept and give help. I would love to hear from others.
