I want to thank the two young men who came to my aid Thursday morning in the Jordan Landing parking lot. I’m 77 and don’t always have the best of balance. I went to get in my car and suddenly fell backward. I hit the ground fairly hard but was uninjured.
Two young people came to help me, but I was too much for them. I weigh 300 pounds. Suddenly these two men in military fatigues came hurrying across the street. One wrapped his arms around me and lifted me completely off the ground and stood me on my feet. He then helped me into the car.
When I tried to thank him, they said it was part of their job. I’m thankful for such good people.
