On my way to the office this morning I drove a route which passes in front of an elementary school, and at its busiest time of day…drop-off-the-kids time. I usually don’t drive this particular route due to cars backed up for a blocks and traffic intersections jammed. However, it was meant to be as can be witnessed by these photographs. The quality is not the best as I shot though my not-so-clean windshield, and in a hurry. At first I was perplexed because of my limited view, but then I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by what I witnessed.What is going on here? A man with a cape. Is there a bull before him? Toro, toro!No bull, just ducks ! This kind man was herding mama duck and her ducklings across the busy street. As the drama unfolded, I couldn’t help but notice how gentle he was despite the urgency of the situation.As mama looks on, this good Samaritan makes sure each duckling reaches the safety…of the grassy area, and away from the vehicles which could have spelled doom for these little guys. Notice her counting each one to make sure all made it safely across the street! Mama seemed grateful for his assistance. Due to the traffic congestion I didn’t have an opportunity to stop and tell this man that what he did not only helped some ducks, but made my day. This was no random act, but a deliberate one. Whoever you are, may you be rewarded for such an act of kindness.
We love this and would welcome the opportunity to feature this on Kindness Blog! No problem if not though 🙂
That would be an honor so do as you wish. I just read several of your posts…very touching indeed. Keep up the encouraging and meaningful work of sharing others lives with us.
Pretty neat! ARK (act of random kindness)

Yes, and just a few blocks away. That could have been you!
I love the story and photos, made my day too!
The seemingly little things in life are most often the best. Always good to see an act of kindness, as are your words to me.
