|The kindness economy|
As I twisted the gas cap on my Dodge Caravan a well-dressed stranger, a seventy-something lady, came around the gas pump and said, “Could you show me how to do this? My husband died and I don’t know how to fill on gas.”
“Someone’s going to get a free cart,” I said. “My quarter is stuck in this one.”
Wisdom for the week: At their best, nonprofits run on an economy of kindness among strangers.
