Bus driver gives own shoes to homeless man
In Winnipeg, the daily news is scary. Stabbings, muggings, shootings, all sort of acts of violence and criminal activities. That all changed yesterday when a transit driver pulled over, abandoned his bus and gave the shoes off his feet to a homeless man. What a selfless act! The good Samaritan did not want the accolades that would accompany such a gesture and has opted to remain nameless. If only we could duplicate this, what a wonderful world it would be. Apparently, his passengers were moved to tears by what he did.
Note: (Sept. 21 update) Bus driver Kris Doubledee finally came forward to admit he was the good Samaritan. His story gained worldwide media coverage and this morning, he will fly out to New York to be on CBS This Morning. I hope his story helps to awaken something in us that drives us to do selfless acts.
