    Time passes by oh-so-quickly, but a moment of kindness can last forever in the human heart.

    In Japan—of course. Where they have respect for the older generation. Here in the FUSA? There is ZERO respect for age, wisdom and experience in this Cult of Porn society we’ve created.

      Maybe where you live. Here in the deepest south, far from Atlanta, I’m always having Lowes fellow shoppers help me load lumber carts, load my truck etc. One of the few good things about being 91.

    Cyrillic letters; is Russian, I think.

    Usually, they show babushka being assisted across the square in a live firefight.

    It’s no problem.

    Nice, but is it even real? Or staged. So hard to trust anything on the interwebz these days.

      Even if it’s staged, it’s a damn good movie.

    Ya, it’s easy to be cynical about the video, in these times. Thinking it was staged,or maybe the guy who shot the video was a pervy voyeur… But I’m going with my first thought; that it’s nice to see there’s still some good in the world, and we need to see more of this sort of thing.

    I saw a sight recently that really choked me up. One Boy Scout took the time to help all the Rolling Stones cross the street.

    The way we should all care about each other.

    “We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand watch as our guardians in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm. A soldier must seize every advantage to defeat his opponent. He must strike swiftly and strike hard… he who dares… wins. But under all circumstances those guardians must stand ready to protect the innocent and those too weak to defend themselves…”

    Yet another example of white privilege, I’m sure.

    I wonder whether an equally old man would have got similar help.

    • Tom Hyland July 11, 2022, 6:54 AM

      Why wouldn’t an old and teetering fellow NOT be helped across the street? Be the example of human compassion within and pay no regard to what others might or might not do.

    I want to live in a world where kindness like that is commonplace.
    It begins with each of us.
