    Everyone has, like those people

    who built my house or made my car or phone or clothes. I don't know them but they've helped me a great deal.

    When I was 19, a Hispanic man bought my lunch

    for me once because my debit card was declined. I also got stuck in pensylvania that year, and a family helped me and my friend get help by letting us stay in their house for an hour, and use their phone on our way down to South Carolina. This was at four in the morning too on...

    I work retail and a department store

    I had an accident that left me a paraplegic &

    my friends raised lots of money from several of the communities I belong to - I never knew so many people would work so hard for me, just because I volunteered for them at some point.

    I was in an abusive relationship

    and had been locked in our cabin for 2 days. I said I had to go to the toilet and I ran. I had been walking along the highway for about 40 mins with no shoes jacket ( it was winter) money or phone when someone pulled over. It was about 11 at night but I was not thinking of...

    My scholarship applications had a glitch

    and didn't submit properly (so no $ for me)...my programs' biggest donor found out the day of all the presentations...I was working behind the scenes, and she came up to me and wrote me a check for more than any of the other scholarships! I almost cried.

    Actually, I have been helped more by strangers

    than by friends, it seems. For example, once me and a friend of mine were walking, when I felt faint, and stopped to catch my breath. We were less than 100 yards from our destination, but he started to panic so much, and I couldn't calm him down since I was out of breath...

    Now I see fire Inside the mountain I see

    fire Burning the trees And I see fire Hollowing souls I see fire Blood in the breeze And I hope that you remember me Oh, should my people fall Then surely I'll do the same Confined in mountain halls We got too close to the flame And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes...

    And I Appreciate It.

    When a friend helps, you are grateful and happy that you have such a friend.When a stranger steps up and lends a had just to be kind, no reward expected, that is a different story. What a blessing to have such friendly strangers.
