The Important Things Life Teaches You...

Pickup in the Rain

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing 

on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. 

Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. 

Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white

man stopped to help her - generally unheard of in those conflict-filled

1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put

her into a taxi cab. She seemed to be in a big hurry! She wrote down his 

address, thanked him and drove away.

Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his

surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special

note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on

the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes but

my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to

my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for

helping me and unselfishly serving others."
