To the Editor:

I had been standing on one foot for a few minutes beside my car at the Subway parking lot in Harker Heights (waiting for a level-10 pain to pass) when a young man approached and asked if I needed help. He didn’t realize how much I appreciated the offer. He took my arm and escorted my cane and me into the shop, and he went back to his table to finish his lunch. And when I was going out, he walked me back to the car. I could have hugged him. (My husband was in the car, but he couldn’t help. We had just come from Scott & White in Temple, where he had a bunch of staples removed from his back.)
