Many of us are convinced that a truly kind person is hard to come by. And unfortunately, this is true. In our modern society, there are many people who don’t care about others and have no desire to improve the world they live in. Very often, we are confronted with selfish and lazy individuals that make us lose our faith in humanity. However, stories like this one remind us there are plenty of kind selfless and compassionate people out there and inspire us for good deeds.
This story was told by Tara Carter, a wife of its main hero. The woman shared her post on a social media because she was very proud of her kind husband. Tara wrote that she and Chris, the husband, were heading home from a supermarket when the man suddenly stopped the car and told her: “Please take the groceries home and come back for me in an hour.” Then, he got out of the car. Tara had no idea what made Chris stop, but she answered “okay” and moved to the driver’s seat.
At that moment, she saw what attracted Chris’s attention. An elderly man was pushing the lawn mower in his yard. Chris approached the stranger, took a mower from him and began to mow the grass.
Tara was deeply touched by her husband’s act and was proud of what Chris did. “I hope this will be a lesson for my son and he will also come to the aid of other people like his father,” she wrote later on her Facebook page.
Unfortunately, such phenomena are happening nowadays so rarely that every case causes genuine surprise and admiration. But we are glad there are still such good people like Chris who was raised properly and knew that one should treat others with kindness. We can only hope that not only his son but also many others will get inspiration from his act and will lend a helping hand to those who need it!
