I remember going to LaborReady in Long Island City, Queens to find work. I had enough money for the carfare there; I was hungry and hoped that the agency would find work and pay me for the day. By the end of the day, there was no work for me. I left; I was hot and tired but I had no money to go home. I worked up enough courage to ask a white gentleman with glasses for carfare to get home. I told him that I went to LaborReady and hadn't found any work that day. He gave me $10.00 dollars. I tried to give it back to him but he wouldn't take it. He told me that when I am in a position to do the same, to do it for another person. I said I would. I sure wish I could find that man to tell thank him. It still brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about him.

It's really a great idea to help people and ask them to in turn help somebody in need!

There are very few people in this world who will help you at the time of adversity. They are angels.

I have been helped by many people in my life and just like the way that man said, be kind to another person.

This is not only a great story of human kindness but also it gives us a insight into using wisdom with our kindness in order for the person who receives the act of kindness to reciprocate the same act on kindness to someone else.
