  1. Thanks for sharing that, Jen. It was definitely uplifting and inspiring, especially since I think more and more often how (borrowing the phrase) this world is going to Hell in a hand basket. You know one thing that’s sad is that, since I am female, I’m usually scared to stop and help, for fear that “something” might happen. Unreasonable fear? Maybe. But I definitely feel more secure when my husband is with me, so I’ll always tell him to “pull over and see if they need help.” There have been times when I’ve mustered up courage to stop when I’m on my own, but first I make a quick phone call to my husband and tell him exactly where I’m at and a descriptor of the vehicle I’m stopping to assist. I feel kind of silly typing that out loud, but it’s the truth. I will say this: no matter the situation, whether I feel brave enough to stop and ask if I can help or not, I always pray for the well-being of the people involved, and that is definitely something we can all safely do. And it does work!

    • No Catie, I don’t think you are being silly at all!!! I am the same way. I think of my personal safety (as a woman, of course) at all times and I don’t think it is a bad thing to be cautious. In fact, when reading the article, it is the one thing I did think was a bad idea was the woman not taking precautions for her safety. I agree, sometimes if it is dubious, it is best to drive on and pray for them. There are police always helping people with flats on the roads out here, so I like to think perhaps it is better if I let them do it. You aren’t alone! 🙂
