LETTER: Kindness on a rainy evening

I went to see the Berlin Circus in Princes Park by taxi. I enjoyed the circus very much. When I came out, it was pouring with rain and very dark. I had arranged for a taxi to collect me from Fort Fun at 10pm. I guess I was looking a little lost because a lady came up to me and said, “Can I run you home?” “No thank you,” I replied, “I have a taxi, picking me up at Fort Fun at 10pm.”

She said “I will take you there.” How kind – and then she waited for the taxi to arrive, wonderful! We did not exchange names, but I would like to say a big thank you to her, she is sure to read this. She did say she has an old mother and hoped someone would be kind to her. Dear lady, thank you so very much.
