WHENEVER HUSBAND FALLS, A PASSER-BY PICKS HIM UP

I have lived in Pittsburgh my entire life. I have never experienced such amazing people!

My husband had a stroke and loses his balance and falls quite often, even with walking equipment. Every time this happens, be it in front of our house or elsewhere in the city, good citizens stop their cars or stop their jogging, walking or riding their bicycles and act to help him.

These people are strangers to us, but they have the compassion and caring that only the good people of our city have. I am very proud of my hometown, but mainly of the very wonderful people who live here.

RESTAURANT OWNER MADE A TEENAGER FEEL SPECIAL

I recently dined with a group of friends at a restaurant in Bridgeville, and seated at the next table were a father and son.

The boy was a mentally handicapped teenager, about 13 years old. We noticed, with great surprise and delight, that the wait staff was paying special attention to him. When he wanted to eat hot dogs, which were clearly not an item on the menu, the chef gave him what he wanted!

When father and son finished their meal, the owner of the restaurant came out of the kitchen with a gift of a T-shirt bearing the name of the restaurant. And as if that were not sufficient, the owner took him for a tour of the restaurant, including the kitchen.

It was a very busy evening for the restaurant, but that did not bother the owner. When the boy returned to his table after the tour, his arms were laden with boxes filled with special dishes served at the restaurant.

My friends and I will certainly return. That restaurant owner is the kind of individual who renews our belief that humanity is still in vogue.
