All, I witnessed a nice scene on the way home last night on Perry Vale. An elderly man fell on the street and a group of strangers gathered round to help him. One lady in particular insisted on walking with him to the mini-cab office to ensure his safe journey home. Thank you very much for intervening and being kind.

Maybe they felt guilty about not intervening during the recent mugging (see mugging thread)

yeah i suppose the person that helped the eldery man was the guradian angle of forest hill and should be helping everyone!

Mandy did you intervene in the recent mugging?

Kate Adie's auto-biog called 'The Kindness of Strangers' helps restore some faith in society :)

I totally recommend it.

I fell of my bike by Westminster Cathedral once (perhaps by beard or flappy sandals had got caught in it); I'd just clocked the winos and thought that that looked like a good lifestyle. They came instantaneously to my rescue, and more importantly offered me the water of life (booze).

Also wasn't that a wonderful moment when that guy proposed to his girlfriend at the end of questiontime a couple of weeks ago on the box (a Crocodile Dundee moment)

See, I have a soft heart.
