Letter: We experienced acts of kindness

Saturday, Sept. 29, was a gorgeous day. My wife and I decided to ride our bicycles in south Fargo. Everything was going great until my wife had an accident on the sidewalk along 25th Street South. She fell on her left side and hit the sidewalk hard, breaking four ribs.

Within moments of the accident, as I was trying to help her, a man stopped his vehicle on 25th Street and came to help. Fortunately, he is a local physician, and I’ve thanked him by personal note.

However, before the physician and I got my wife into his vehicle for a ride home, two other strangers stopped, checked on us and offered help. I didn’t get their names, but I was truly grateful for them stopping and offering assistance.

I’d like these two people to know their concern was truly touching. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise, but yet it did. Their willingness to help someone they did not know prompted me to think again and be grateful for our wonderful community and its residents. Strangers, please accept my thanks.

Oh, and be sure to wear your helmet when riding a bike. It’s the right thing to do.
