yes that is a lovely story. There are still some decent people out there, not many but some do exist.

I am sure that stories like this go underreported you know - there are good samaritans all over the place

Oh and I hope the original guard has read that and knows what an impact he has had not just on that one man but as a knock on effect

wow

My other half is wondering why I'm sat here crying! Gorgeous story.

What a wonderful article.

I did something similar once. I'd do it again too.

Reminds me of the time I ran away from a job and a lady gave me money for a train ticket. British rail wouldn't help me though but I found a security guard who gave me enough money to get home.

Well I thought I'd read the story to see what you bunch of softies were blubbing about, I mean fgs, crying over a newspaper story hmm - so I read it, anyone got a tissue? blush what a lovely story. Thanks for posting that Notalone!

Oh - I didn't realise anyone else had read it after Xmas day. I just re read it and the tears are back. blush. I hope that conductor has read the story and knows the effect that one action has had on the man's life. Truly lovely smile
