On a cold winter drive home at dusk through New Orleans East, I witness an act of kindness that brought tears to my eyes. A young black man (we'll call him "J") that I know, was commuting along side me. This young man grew up in some of the roughest neighborhoods in the area. He knows the city and its neighborhoods. As we drove through New Orleans "east" he spotted a young white man walking along side of the interstate with a gas can. He pulled over and gave this young man a ride to the gas station. Why? Because it was cold, or was it because he knew a young white man should not be walking in that neighborhood? It was probably both. "J", you are a hero!
