I’m an 80-plus-year-old woman recovering from a broken wrist. I decided Saturday morning to walk to VONS and do my shopping, with the idea of using the shopping cart to go home.

Not as easy as it sounds.

I got as far as Emblem Elementary School and realized the street is on a slight incline and it was becoming very difficult to manage the cart with only one working hand.

Several young people walked past me as though I was invisible. I was just about to admit defeat and call for help when I noticed a truck that just passed had stopped.

This young man named Jason approached me and offered to help me.

I gratefully accepted. He got me, my groceries and cart home.

When I asked this total stranger what I could do to show my appreciation for his kindness, his response was, “Have a nice day.”

I just wanted to share this experience and wish all of you a nice day.
