One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman stood at the edge of a highway in Alabama under a strong storm. His car had broken down and desperately needed someone to take her. Soaked, he decided to make him sign to the next car that passed. Despite being a time of acute racial conflicts, a young white man stopped to help her, took her to a safe place and put her in a taxi. Lady, who seemed quite accurate, noted the direction of the young, thanked him and left.

Seven days later, they knocked on the door of the House of the young. To his surprise, was a package to its name: a TV screen with a note saying:

Thank you very much for helping me on the highway the other night. The rain flooded not only my clothes, but my spirit. Then appeared to you. Thank you, I could get next to the bed of my husband dying, right before her death. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.

"Sincerely, the Lady's Nat King Cole"

Do not expect anything in return and receive it.
