When I first read today’s Good assignment, I was a little concerned. As a freelancer, I sometimes see very few (or no) people in a day. What if I couldn’t FIND someone to help?
But not to worry, my friends, because today I’m traveling, and airports are FILLED with people who need help. I tend to focus my helpful airport energy on people with babies our small children because really, that’s like traveling with a loud, sensitive atomic bomb. I’m so glad it’s not me that I’d do ANYTHING they need. Pretty much.
I held a door for a lady balancing a squirming toddler and several bags in her arms, as well as pushing a stroller with which said toddler would have NOTHING to do. I also held back a wave of departing shuttle bus traffic while a mom with bags, stroller and a sleeping baby made their exit.
Airports: full of experts and chances for good citizenship.
