Motivation Monday

Life Vest Inside has had the very good fortune of finding writers willing to share their Kindness Stories/Articles with us. One of our special recurring writers is David Jablinowitz, Op-Ed Editor at Jerusalem Post, who is famous for his “bus stories.”

When Good Food Meets Goodwill

Outside a shawarma eatery, a woman on a stretcher is receiving medical attention. Doesn’t seem too serious, hopefully.
Guy from the store comes out with a water bottle and a salad to go for the patient.
“Was she in the middle of ordering?” I ask him.
“No,” he replies, “I just figured I’d treat her to something healthy. She seems okay and I’m sure she’ll be able to eat in a few minutes.”
Then he asks the first responders. “Some shawarma?” They decline.
“C’mon,  you deserve it,” he persists.
“When we finish our shift,” says one.
“Take my number,” says the shawarma guy. “Call me when you’re coming. I’ll prepare it for you.”
