Have you ever helped a stranger? If so, what did you do?
One sweltering day in June, as I was driving home I saw a man walking down the street with a gas can in his hand. I picked him up and took him to the gas station. He said, "bye"......and I said I am staying to give you a ride back. He was so surprised. He was dumbfounded. It was cool and I have never forgotten it. (Normally, I wouldn't pick up a stranger)
Yes, on the way to work one snowy morning I came upon an accident and I got out of my car without even thinking and walked up to the car in front of me that had been hit head on and it was a young pregnant girl who was in shock and crying and all she could do was worry that her husband was going to be mad about the car. I took her back to my car and let her warm up and calmed her down. I never asked her what her name was but I believe that I helped her from losing that baby as as histerical as she was she could have really had problems. I feel good that I was there and believe God brought me there at that very moment to help her.
standing in line at a supermarket, the two older gentlemen in front of me were told that they couldn't use the food stamps they had to pay for their food. (don't know the reason)
i paid their bill, about $30, they were grateful, but i felt great that i could help someone who obviously needed it.
One early morning before daybreak, I came out to my car in the driveway and found a man standing there asking for a ride. I really didn't think about the possible danger it could have been. I simply said yes, thinking how desperate he must be. It turned out that he was looking for recruits for a MLM scheme he was promoting. It is possible he did not even need my help. No harm done.
it was a few days back when i helped an old blind women cross the road. she blessed me
Its always nice to help people out. One time I helped a lady carry all of her bags to her car.
Another time my wife and I helped a lost child find her mother. We saw the little girl walk out of a mall store by herself. We followed her for a bit before we got her to turn around and go back to the store.

You say you help people through self empowerment, have you ever helped someone with bipolar?Have you ever taken on a client who has a personality disorder? If so do you find your methods more or less helpful to someone with this particular set of hurtles?

Have you ever saved a person's life?I don't want responses from doctors, nurses, or EMT's, they do that on a daily basis.

I once lost electrical power in my car on a Friday afternoon while crossing the GW bridge in the left lane going fast. I thought that this might be my last day in this life!! Within seconds I made it off the Bridge and don't know how I got there ??? Ended up in a real nasty part of NYC just before...
