A little help

Helping a Friend

I had the pleasure of stumbling upon this sweet man yesterday. I was driving home from school, looking for my “photo a day”. I saw this man out of the corner of my eye. I decided to pull into a parking lot and wait for a second. He made his way around the corner and started his climb up a somewhat steep hill. In a car it is not all that noticeable but in a wheelchair? It would be hard on me, definitely for him. He was tip toeing, inching his way along. He was making it, but barely.

I could see it was a struggle so I decided to help him along. I still have a hard time approaching someone I do not know but he seemed pretty harmless. Why not make a new friend!

I think he was rather shocked when I walked up to him and asked if he would like some help to the top. He replied without hesitation, “yes I would.” I think he enjoyed giving his legs a break as I pushed him along. We made some small talk before reaching the top. His quiet voice was hard to understand but I believe he said his name was Bill Williams.

When parting ways, I asked if he minded if I took his picture. He said “yes you can.” As I drove away, we both waved as though it was a “see you soon”.
