Act of Kindness

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.5-13-14 001What is going on here? A man with a cape. Is there a bull before him? Toro, toro!5-13-14 002No 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.5-13-14 003As mama looks on, this good Samaritan makes sure each duckling reaches the safety…5-13-14 004of 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.
