I must add that my life on Newark-Granville Road often sees this chivalry by gentleman number one. There have been many times he has been traveling on Newark-Granville Road and seen our family in need and he stops to help. I hated to admit this evening that I needed help. I didn't want to inconvenience and delay anyone from getting home. But I know to ask for help- it is the only way my life on Newark-Granville Road works and I knew this gentleman would help as best he could. What I also witnesses was he asked for help- he was the one asking the other parents in the lot tonight for the jumper cables.
What I also so value in this gentleman's support is the role model he serves for not only his own children, but the others around us tonight and my own. On drive home with my three kids from RVP our discussion included praise for the helpers and why we serve one another, support one another. Often need happens when we don't have the time, or have plans or are ready to be home or somewhere else. The gentleman helping tonight- Joe included- easily could of left me on my own, given me a ride and left it to tomorrow- but they did not. They all performed a gallant deed to assist me so I am able to sit comfortably on Newark-Granville Road and tuck my children to bed. I'm indeed very grateful for such care in our community.
