The Good Samaritan @ the 77th St. Station

This is a link to a blog post by our friends who live in New York City, the Roses.  We stayed with them for a few crazy days while we were in New York.  They are amazing people and we loved our time with them, you can read more about that here.  On top of inviting strangers with three monkeys for kids into their home to stay and live with them for a weekend, they are also wonderful writers.  The story Katy depicted reminds us all that it doesn’t take elaborate programs to change the world, it takes simple acts of love, or even better – simply LOVE.  As Mother Teresa said, “We can do no great things; only simple things with great love.”  What if every day each of us did what “the man who didn’t pass by” did?
