To the Valley News:
In Praise Of The Good Samaritan Driver, the driver who, on Jan. 12, during a snowstorm displayed a rare and random act of kindness in voluntarily taking the time to slow down and escort our broken down vehical in tow on Route 9 in Elizabethtown to Lewis, to our home.
This kind person put on their four way flashers and took up the rear behind my husbands car I was towing home with a tow strap. My husbands car lights were fading due to a failing battery and we were fighting daylight and bad road conditions to get the vehical home safely. What that driver did not know is that my husband had just driven his bi-weekly commute from New York City and almost made it home, but broke down. I was working overtime plowing snow during the days snowstorm and had to get special permission to leave my job 45 minutes away to come rescue my stranded husband. To have a stranger take the time and initiative to not pass us like so many others, but instead to escort us home in safety at the end of a long day for both of us was a very much appreciated kind gesture. We don't know who you are, but wanted to say thank you. The world needs more people like you. We will pay it forward!
