Leave my granddaughter alone

“My friend’s younger sister was coming home by herself when a guy on the bus began hassling her. An elderly man on the other side of the bus stood up and demanded that the guy ‘leave his granddaughter alone.’ The guy stopped, and got off at the next stop. The elderly man was a stranger.”

Last week I discovered www.givesmehope.com where people can share short stories that give them hope. There are several entries, including the one above, which show the kindness of strangers in public. I post so many stories about the horrible things strangers do in public so I see these as a nice change of pace!  For the next few weeks I’ll be posting one positive story each Monday morning as a start-to-the-week pick-up.

If you have a positive story to share, please do so and I’ll add it to the repository for Monday morning posting.
