Woman Helps Homeless Person, Doesn’t Post It On The Internet

December 10, 2015

Late last night in front of a local grocery store, an unidentified area woman assisted a homeless man with some food, money, and a blanket she retrieved from her trunk.

A young woman shopping nearby watched the woman in action and related the story:

“She looked like she was in a hurry and didn’t even seem to know the guy, but he was very cold and hungry and she helped him out. The old man was very appreciative. It really was very nice. But when I got home later, I looked on the internet and couldn’t find any posts about it. Then I looked this morning and still nothing. It was weird. I mean, she did way more than that lady who didn’t help that young cashier whose mom didn’t actually die that morning. I don’t understand it.”

Specific details of the touching act of kindness were hard to come by due to the lack of a skillfully-penned Facebook post, a tearful Instagram photo, or a dramatic YouTube video. Local media is at a loss to even find the link to a GoFundMe page for her.

**** “And the young woman, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? She helped without writing. She helped without boasts. She helped without Facebook, YouTube, and sharing of posts. And she puzzled and puzzled ’till her puzzler was sore. Then the woman thought of something she hadn’t before. What if goodness, she thought, was not just for page views to soar. What if goodness, perhaps, means a little bit more.” (With apologies to Dr. Seuss) ****

    What good is selflessness without recognition?

    Wow! Who could it have been, that was so very kind? A ghost,or a saint or actual person refined? To keep such a secret from all possible views? Not Twitter or Facebook or a Snapchat or two? There’s only one answer, must be Cindy Lou

    Great post…forgive me running with it!
