Cars gliding by 35-40 miles per hour including a police-car passing by a blind-woman attempting to cross the Hamburg Turnpike showing her no regard.
A gentleman in an MG convertible is stopped in front of me waiting for the woman to cross the street but the oncoming cars continued on. At this point, I flip on my hazard lights, get out of my car and stop the oncoming traffic allowing the lady to cross the street as she puts out her stick and taps the Hamburg Turnpike making sure nothing is in her path.
The cars are now stopped and she is stationary on the side of the road other than a tap-tap coming from an extended long black stick. It is now safe for her to cross the street as I play traffic-cop for a brief minute along a busy NJ roadway and direct the woman across the street.
My good friend Rick O’Neill texts me a Bible verse every single morning. This morning’s verse states “You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.” Job 11:18,19
I hope the women I helped across the street today hears that verse one day and thinks of the help she receives from other caring citizens that most likely do the same thing I did in seeing to her safety.
She can look about and most likely see nothing, yet there is hope she can rest in safety because the Lord says that in the book of Job.
I like it…
