 Another good samaritan act that be an example of decent behavior for the rest of us. A man was dining in a restaurant next to a Mother/Daughter when the daughter received a phone call that left both in tears. He then overheard the conversation that followed and learned that someone in their family had just been diagnosed with a terrible disease.
As a gesture of compassion, he asked his waiter to bring him their bill along with his own, but not to tell them. The man finished his meal, paid both bills and left. Afterward, the waiter revealed to the saddened Mother/Daughter that the stranger had paid their bill and wished them the best. This news then brought tears of joy to the pair who's faith in their fellow man had been renewed.
