A Lifeline Halfway Around the World

Last week I met someone (now a new friend) who displayed more compassion than I have seen in a very long time. An acquaintance of hers fell ill thousands of miles away from home where he didn’t speak the language. My new friend mobilized a whole group of people – from her friends and family to individuals from Chicago Booth – to help her acquaintance.

The good news is that her acquaintance will be okay, but I believe not without the help of my new friend. One person taking a series of babysteps made a big difference.

Way to go, friend!

Have a great day,
Anita
