Teens Shoveling Snow For Cash Save Stranger’s Life
by McKinley Corbley – Jan 10, 2017

*** begin quote ***

These four teens were just looking to shovel some driveways in exchange for pocket money – but while they were going door to door, they found something much more important.

Coby, Rebecca, Marcello, and Jerry were for shoveling snow throughout their neighborhood in LaSalle, Colorado. When they knocked on one door in particular, however, they heard shouts for help.
An old man had apparently fallen to the ground in pain a few days previously and was unable to get up.

“You could clearly see he was in pain,” Zach Hill of the LaSalle Fire Department told NBC. “This gentleman had been there for, we’re not sure how long, and we don’t know how long he would’ve been there had they not knocked on the door so they had a huge part in getting him help.”

*** end quote ***

I’m lucky. I have two “stalkers” — a fiancé and an niece-in-law — who keep track of me.

What about all the “old folks” who aren’t so lucky?

It would seem that good Christians would at least look out for the neighbors?

“And who is my neighbor?”

The parable of the Good Samaritan.

Funny how things just seem to come back around.
