I came across this story and couldn’t help but share it here because it reminded me that Good Samaritan’s still exist today.
People who take time to notice others who are in need.
People who go out of their way to help someone out when it’s easier to pass them by.
People who have a heart of compassion rather than selfishness.
This story isn’t that extravagant. But it’s a beautiful one nevertheless.
It reminded me once again that in a world where often times we just worry about ourselves there are still people out there who take the time to care for others as well.
And it inspires me to be that person. That person that doesn’t just pass someone by without reaching out a hand to help them. That person that takes the time to see the hurting people around me. That person that takes time to be a Good Samaritan.
I hope it inspires you to be that person too. 🙂 –Anna… ♥
It was a cold November night in Times Square when Officer Lawrence DePrimo came across a barefoot homeless man. Officer DePrimo disappeared for a moment, then returned with a new pair of boots, and knelt to help the man put them on.
The act of kindness would have gone unnoticed, if not for a tourist from Arizona who snapped the picture and posted it on the NYPD’s Facebook page.
Officer DePrimo is only 25 – and has only been on the force for 2 years. He had no idea the picture was taken or that it’s been viewed by thousands of people.
