Re: Faith in Humanity Restoration Thread

Several years ago I was driving back to NC from IL with my daughter and my car broke down on I-64 outside Charlottesville--a belt broke. we didn't own a cell phone at that time so we couldn't call for help. We stood on the side of the 6 lane road making phone signals to passing cars (you know, hand up to our ear). Eight different people stopped to offer help--one woman offered to use her pantyhose in place of the broken belt. No one threatened or scared us. Someone ultimately called the highway patrol and he called a tow truck. We were towed to a service station and since they (service station guys) couldn't get a replacement belt that day, they drove us to a nice hotel for the night. The whole experience restored my faith in humanity.
