In the 1960s Barbara was driving on a very stormy night. She was exhausted and hungry when she felt a flat tire. Barbara parked beside the road and stood by her car for help.
She waved for every vehicle that was passing, but none of them stopped to help Barbara. She was there for almost an hour, and it was freezing when a rusty old car parked behind her car.
A young man walked out of the vehicle; Barbara got a little scared. The young man said: “It is frigid, go and sit in the car while I change the tire.”
Barbara got very happy. When the young man changed the tire knocked on the window, Barbara walked out of her car, thanked him, and handed him a bill of fifty.
The young man refused and said: “I didn’t do it for money, just promise to pass the help.”
Barbara went to a diner to eat at that night. The waitress was a pregnant young girl.
Barbara ordered her food and asked for the bill. The waitress left it on the table, and the amount was around twenty dollars.
When the waitress wanted to collect the money saw a hundred dollar bill with a note saying: “The rest of the money is for you. I know it is tough to work when you are carrying a child. A young man told me tonight –Don’t be the last person to help others.-“
When the young girl went home and showed her husband the note and thanked God for the help. The young man wiped his tears and said: “She didn’t break her promise.”
