Yesterday, I had a particularly unique experience.  I actually got to walk an elderly lady across the street.  As cliche as this is, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone actually do it.
You should all try it.  It’s an amazing feeling.  This was the sweetest woman– she looked at me as if I were an angel and smiled as I held her arm.  Just knowing that I could be there, at the right time, to help this woman— I know that it sounds silly, and even I laugh a little at the irony of it.  But it is really great to do something for a complete stranger.  I will probably never see her again.  In a little way, though, I feel like I made a difference.
