Goodness everywhere

I was touched the other day by the kindness of an Israeli lady. I was walking a Filipino family - mother and three little girls - to the tram. The family has been in great difficulty lately, with the father being arrested and thrown into prison for lack of documents. That night, it was this Israeli lady who came to the house, stayed with the family, and even arranged for a lawyer to help with the case. She was the kindergarten teacher of the oldest kid. I was touched by the affection with which she greeted the girls yesterday, and the little signs of affection that she extended repeatedly to the mother. I realised I should never generalize about people. There are good people everywhere. Barukh ha Shem.
