At A London Bus Stop June 9, 2012 – Posted by j.asmara
One late winter’s evening I was standing at a bus stop in gloomy, wet and windy London. Then I noticed a young man running as fast as he could and just behind him there was a number eight bus.

He wasn’t going to make it to the bus stop in time – unless I did something!

I held my hand out and stopped the bus. The guy was still running, so I proceeded to walk slowly towards the bus. I put my right foot on the step to keep the door open and, finally, the young man reached the bus stop!

He stopped next to me and leaned against a tree to catch a breathe and let me get on the bus first. But I turned around and stepped back. He looked at me with surprise. Then he understood what I had done for him.

He got on the bus but still kept looking at me. I smiled and turned away. The bus left. I felt good.

Every little helps!
