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.”

A Family’s Kindness Saved Us

It was a beautiful summer day, and my friend and I were driving down the highway, enjoying the scenery. Suddenly, a car swerved into our lane, and we were hit head-on. The next thing we knew, we were lying on the side of the road, dazed and injured. We tried to get up, but we couldn’t move. That’s when we saw a family from out of state pull over. They rushed to our side, and seeing we were hurt, they drove us to the hospital.
At the hospital, the family stayed with us, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. They even went out of their way to get us food and drinks. We were so grateful for their kindness and generosity. Amazingly, they had interrupted their vacation to help us.
After we were released from the hospital, the family took us home and made sure we were settled in. They even offered to stay with us until we were feeling better. We couldn’t believe how kind and selfless they were.
That day, we learned that there are still good people in the world who are willing to help others in need. We will never forget the kindness of that family, and we will always be grateful for their help.
