To the Boy on the Train Tonight
So to the boy on the train tonight, let me say it again. Thank you. Thank you for your small gesture of kindness that means the world to me. Thank you for showing me that human kindness still exists. That you are aware of others around you, and conscientious of their needs and caring enough to inconvenience yourself for another. So often I see someone I could help, but for fear of rejection or embarrassment (of me or them) or just fear of leaving my comfort zone, I stay put. This boy didn't and he was such an example to me. Its such a small thing, but even now, four days later, I just can't help but smile when I think of the kind gesture.
I hope Olivia marries a boy like the boy on the train.
