This time in our global experience inspires the heroic acts of compassion, sharing, and service by public-facing people.
Yet, there are also unannounced, quiet acts of service by equally heroic people, who asked to remain Anonymous:
~ The neighbor from another street, who mows the grass of a teacher and single mother who is now teaching her class of 4th graders from home. She keeps missing her stealthy neighbor, but their service allows her kids to play outside.
~ The high school teacher who, concerned about the business needs of her local bakery, buys loaves of banana bread and zucchini bread to deliver to postal carriers, gas station attendants, trash truck operators, and school cafeteria workers who daily continue in their jobs.
~ The young doctoral student who sends surprise, whimsical care packages to individual family since she can’t travel to see them.
~ The nine year-old who, after a surprise daybreak coffee brew for his Mom, who teaches from home, has made this act of love a daily morning occurence.
~ The thoughtful neighbor who quietly left a roll of toilet paper and a box of tissues at the door of each of the families in the apartment complex where they all live.
Thank you for all these unselfish gifts!
