The kindness of strangers sometimes can seem more inspiring and hope-
giving than that of friends, because you know that they're not
getting anything out of it.
When coming home from Sirius, I ended up at the bottom of a 2-story
flight of stairs in the subway with my huge 8-month preggo belly and
my huge why-was-I-dumb-enough-to-oack-this-much suitcase and no
elevators. I sorta bumped it up the stairs one at a time to the first
landing. I rested there for a minute and then faced the second
flight. Just then, a gang of teenagers (and I do mean gang, they had
on what was obviously their "uniform") came downt he opposite flight
of stairs. One of them vaulted over the divider and I had a brief
moment of panic before the young man said "Can I carry this up the
stairs for you?". I think I cried a bit. When a gang kid in the Big
City helps out a stupid pregnant stranger, I think there's some hope
in the world left.
I wish so much for you to find the happiness you deserve. I'm
fighting depression, too. If you ever want to commisserate, please
write me.
Lauren
