“I’m looking for the kind White Haired Lady who stopped to give me assistance … I want to Thank You.”

This message on a yellow piece of paper posted on the bulletin board of the IGA grocery store in Reading, Ohio, was the coolest thing that I had seen all day—a stranger taking the time to search for a stranger who had helped her after an accident. I realize that this person might search and search and never find the woman who had helped her, but the fact that she had reached out and tried to connect was heartwarming.

Does the old-fashioned bulletin board still bring people together? Something like “this message even if it doesn’t find the kind Lady makes everyone who reads it feel more connected.. grateful for people who still help strangers and for those who want to thank them….”
