The Good Samaritan

In the Biblical parable, the Good Samaritan helped an injured man whom others had passed by.  In the story we cover on Monday, a cross-country athlete stopped to help an injured runner whom others had passed by. 

And even though he finished the race afterward, the good samaritan on CNN Student News gave up any chance he had of winning it.  But his exceptional example of sacrifice isn't the only example we've seen.  And we'd like you to tell us about something you or someone you know did to help someone else.

Could be something small, like skipping a party to help your little brother with his homework.  Or it could be something bigger, like giving up a game to help another player.  You tell us.

    This past week my school held a Dig Pink volleyball game and Drew and I made Tie-Dye pink shirts for the players. Our Key Club officers, Angie, Kimmie, Drew, Mrs. Frost and I made over 300 dollars selling pink ribbons to the school. One of our teachers had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and we are donating all the money in her name to the Susan B. Koman Foundation.

    I love this parable and think it is a great one to learn and live by. I haven't done anything like what he did but I have done little things like help clean up the house when my mom or dad is sick. Or give my jacket to someone at school or something like that.

    You know, it's rare these days to find someone kind enough to help others at their own sacrafice. I remember way back when I was a new immigrant to this country, older cousin used to drop hanging out with his friends, playing basketball, and skip parties just to help me with my english, and assist me in adapting to new enviorments in the United States. He made it a priority to himself to help me make it through my first year, and I'm very grateful for everything he ever did for me.

    This Summer I went on a trip to Australia with a group called People to People. I had a core group of friends that I stuck with for most of the trip. I had realized that cliques had started to form and there was this one girl who always sat alone. So one day even though I wasn't able to be with my friends I spent the day with her. Turns out she was really nice and we became tight!

    Almost every week I do plays, or anything theater related. So once, before rehearsal, the cast when in the back room. There was a girl whom not everyone knew, and no one wanted to talk to her. Some of my friends said she was weird, but I disregarded that and went over and said hi. She was extremely grateful, and now we're really great friends, even at the expense at being scoffed at by my other 'friends'

    One nasty, rainy day, I had a soccer game. The fields were slick and everybody was slipping and sliding all over the place. A girl from the other team gave a pass and slipped and fell on her side. Everybody pretended like she wasn't sitting there holding her side and rolling around. I used up every last drop of energy to kick the ball out of bounds and make sure she was all right. She thanked me greatfully and told me she was afraid she was going to be tramped over if I hadn't helped. It really made my day a whole lot brighter. (and I made a new friend!)

    When I was on vacation in Orlando, Florida several years ago, I had the choice of going to Disney for the second time that week, or help my cousin in the local soup kitchen. I choose the Soup Kitchen. I'll never forget talking with the people who came in. They were so nice and thankful for my services. It gave me the best feeling in the world, and now I help out at my local Soup Kitchen as often as possible.

    When I was little, I didn't know how to swim. I would always watch my friends have fun in the pool while I would just stand there and watch. And so my dad enrolled me into a YMCA swimming class. My swim instructor taught me how to swim, even though at first I was scared. I am truly grateful for her, because she kept me going, through encouragement and lots of work, and taught me how to swim.

    A few months ago, my friend hosted a big birthday party with ice skating, a movie, and In N' Out. But while we were ice skating, she fell on her blade and ended up with a big gash on her knee. She had to get 5 stitches, and we all waited anxiously for her dad to pick her up to take her to the hospital. We did not pay attention to the movie at all; we were so anxious. Finally, at the restaurant, she came with a bandage on her leg, and my friends and I were so glad to see her. We helped her get onto a chair and put our jackets on top of her leg to keep her warm. She got her stitches off last month and we're all happy to know that she's all right.

    One day, on the way to work, I saw an accident and an injured man lying down on the street with blood all over him. People did nothing but gathering around and talked about him.
    At that moment, a man came right up to the victim and have another man load him into his mootorbike and went straight to the hospital.
    From that moment on, everytime I see an accident on the street reminding me about that kind generous man.

    Last year, in the year of 2010, I was falling horribly behind in math. There was a handicapped boy in my grade who needed help with his math. He didn't comprehend it. I knew what I was doing, so I helped the boy, as I helped him, I did my homework as well. He turned out comprehending the math, and ended up getting a better grade as well.

    One time I was doing my usual morning jog when I ran by a small house that had a small fire blazing on the roof. Just then the roof collapsed and I heard someone scream for help. The thing was is that I was making really good time that day so I made the decision to give it up to save this person. I busted in and pulled the guy who was now disabled out of the fire just as the whole building collapsed in debris and fire.

    Personally, I have never done anything to help someone by going out of my way. Although, I have seen others do it though. On the way home from a concert, my dad and I saw a car that was pulled over on the side of the road with the hood open. He pulled over and talked to the man who owned the car. As it turned out, the man had ran out of gas and my dad happened to have a gallon to get him to the gas station.

    I think it was a real show of character that the boy stopped and helped the injured runner. He has some real integrity, and he did this not knowing if he would get credit for it he did it just to help out not to be rewarded. It was an act from the heart and I'm sure a real blessing to the injured boy. We all need to be on the lookout for ways to help in our community like the boy did.

    My church was giving up books to some kind of orphanage, and was asking to for support. I gave up some of my books, even some of my favorite and the ones that gave me nostalgia, for the orphanage. I thought what you did when you helped the boy instead of simply finishing the race was great; You may not think of it as big, but anything like giving something up for someone is big.

    I helped someone that just had surgery, and he needed someone by him so they could get him any thing he needed. So me and my brother had to sleep on the couch, and when he needed something, we had to get him stuff. That made me feel really good that I could help him. That's how I was a good Samaritan.

    Last year about 3 elementary schools closed down, and so our school was overflowing with kids from different schools. My best friend, Mandy has a dry skin condition, and her eyes were a little big. She was always getting picked on and kids just wouldn't leave her alone. I used to get bullied a lot and I knew how it felt, so I stepped in got her out of there. I knew that it would effect me, and that I would probably get bullied again, but I didn't care. Now we're best friends and we stick up for any other kids that get bullied.

    Every Saturday a few years ago i couldn't do anything. My church had started another smaller church in Herdon. We had services every saturday and me and my sister had to sacrifice not going to friends houses or birthday partys. At this little church we would help in the small childrens class. i would mainly help the babies. But the sacrifice paid off now the small church is bigger and has more members.

    A few years ago I helped build the addition to our house. I had a brother, and a sister sleeping on the hidda-bed because our house didn't have enough rooms. We had to build two rooms, one bathroom, and a living room. I had to build the foundation, I had to roof it, I had to go under the house to insulate it. Now on that Thanksgiving they moved in to their own room, and they are happy.

    I remember last summer when I spent two weeks at my grandparents with all my cousins. One afternoon around 6pm we were having fun around the pool and my little cousins were getting out of the pool to prepare to shower. Suddenly when we were not watching, my smallest cousin who was 2 years old at that time, jumped into the pool without her armbands on and I immediately dove into the pool to rescue her in time. When I got her out of the pool safe and sound all my family thanked me and I felt really proud and happy for my little cousin.

    I was once struggling with carrying two large baskets of laundry when this old lady who lived down the hall from me stopped what she was doingt o help me grab one. I told her she didn't have to, but she didn't listen. She insisted that she grab one and carry it to my door for me. I thanked her, and then the next few weeks I didn't see her. Then one day, I saw her struggling with groceries, so I held the door open for her and grabbed as many bags as I could.

My mom had the gastric bypass so she could lose weight to spend more time with my sister and myself. She is on the Indian ed. parent commity and loves to help them with anything she can.

I took the puppy home and cared for it, although I have another dog and my mom didn't want any more pets in the house. I cared for the dog the whole summer and eventually gave it away to my cousin, because I knew I wouldn't be able to care for it once school started. I still see the dog, almost everyday. i feel like I did the right thing

    It was during a piano contest, everybody could practice during ten minutes before playing. I had just started when I saw a little boy crying silently in front of his piano. He was practicing over and over, but just couldn't play it well. It really looked important to him, so I decided to give him some help. After ten minutes, he was doing a lot better. I hadn't any time to practice so my own music was quite a fail, but the little boy did quite well and was much applaused. You always feel better when you care about other people instead of worrying only about yourself.

    During the summer I went to India to spend time with my Grandparents, and I went to a local church. While I was there I saw a bunch of little kids starving and just skin in and bone. From that day everyday i would go to a grocery store and buy food for the little kids. I would use my allowance and i would even take leftovers from my house and take it to them (because it was just down the road). This kids were so greatfull for the little things. This is being a good samaritan but everyone do this because it is a human's duty to give back to a fellow less fortunate human being.

    I was at Camp for the day and I had it all planned out that me and my friend Luke were going to go to the rope swing with a bunch of our friends. About an hour before we were going we were all at the beach getting ready, Luke had stepped on something sharp and cut really deep into his skin. I offered to carry him back to his site so we could take care of it. I told everyone that he was going to be okay and that I would take care of him while they all went to the rope swing. Luke is like my little brother I'd give anything up if he couldn't go along.

    One summer my mom was at a gas station getting something to drink. While she was checking out, there was a man at the next cash register. The cashier was telling him to hurry up as he was digging in is pocket to get change. I guess he didn't have enough money. The man was really embarrased. When my mother was done, she walked over and handed the man the money he needed. The man stared at her in awe. Everyone in the lines were amazed that someone had done something so selfless. My mother just walked out and didn't say a word.
    It amazes me that people were surprised that someone had done something nice to someone they didnt know. I think everyone should work a little harder to be caring to people that need help sometime. Now that times are so modern, no one does anything nice.

    I was at school one day when someone tripped down the stairs and their stuff scattered all over the stairs and down through the hallway. everyone kept walking and just stepped on her stuff to worried about being late to class that they didnt care about this person. i saw what had happened and stopped. only one other person out of probably 100 stopped to help her. she was also new. i helped her get her stuff and ended up being 2 minutes late to class on a test day. alot of her papers had been stepped on and ripped. what was really bad was that this girl had no idea where she was going so i helped her find her class. i thought it was really sad because only 2 of around 100 stopped to help. she could have been to class on time if more people had helped her. now this girl is one of my best friends in the world!

    that was a good act of kindness. everyone should just look around for awhile and see what you notice there might be someone or something that needs help. but the society is so messed up that no one wants to do that anymore.its sad that there is so many people and animals and no one pays attention to it they walk by and forget about it right as soon they pass by.

    A Good Samaritan sacrifices. Rather it's a large or small sacrifice. I always make time to help others with homework. It may not seem like it's worth it at first, but afterwar you will be so glad you helped someone out. It's all about helping others and not only yourself.

    This happened right before a big show my school was putting on. It started in 20 minutes, and straight away, I noticed a fellow classmate having trouble raising and lowering different backdrops. So I ran over and helped him, myself, for the 20 minutes. After helping him, I realized he didn't have enough strength to lift and lower the back drops, so I helped him for the whole show. I was supposed to play the lead part, but luckly, my understudy showed up. If I hadn't helped him, I think the show wouldn't have done so great.

    My mom and I were at a concert and we had two tickets to give to someone. We found a little girl with Down Syndrome and her father. I found out the girl was nervous because her seats were very high up and that made her nervous. I gave her and her father the tickets and now we are really good friends.

    I think that what he did might influence some other kids or people to start helping others when they need help. What he did was some people wouldn't do so that was very thoughtful. I would do the same and I think that's everyone should try to do.

    On father's day, my uncle was getting out of the hospital from a knee operation and asked my dad to pick him up. My father gave up half of his day to help his uncle get home and do his grocery shopping. I admire my dad for all the sacrifices he makes for his family.

    Once in the winter, we were sliding on some ice when I noticed on little girl in the middle, crying and repedetly getting rammed by others sliding by. I slid to her and took her in my arms, sheilding her as the others slid into me instead. Once they had stopped I took her to a teacher and explained the situation, then went back to have fun once I was sure she was OK.

    One time when I was much younger I was too sick to go trick-or-treating on Halloween night but my sister went. I stayed at my grandmas house to rest. When my sister came back she had two bags of candy. One for her and one for me. My sister showed a great example of a Good Samaritan that night. She got me the treats that Halloween offered and thought about me and not just herself, going through the trouble of explaining the second treat at each doorstep and how I was sick. Thanks Clare.

    This one girl that goes to my school doesn't come from a very wealthy family. Everyone is mean to her because she isn't "stylish" or very smart. I feel really bad for her because I know that she is very nice and funny. One day in elementary school I decided to do little things to make her feel better. Now, I give her compliments all the time and try to start conversations with her. I smile at her and give her a wink when I see her in the hallway at school. I also sit with her when I ride the school bus. She feels a little better about herself now and she knows she will always have someone to rely on. By doing something small, I made this girl relize that she isn't so bad after all.

    I think that what that boy did to help! My story is quite the same it was at a gymnastics meet, I saw a great person going on to the tumble track and I saw her slip and fall. She had got her toe caught under a spring board. She had split a vain and crack ed the bone. I saw her sitting there and noone would go and help her! So I ran over to help her in the middle of my proformence, she still to this day thanks me. The funny part was this was the "big one" no redos...

About every month or so i go to my room and take out the things i don't want anymore or don't play with and give it to the Salvation Army.

    One time i was in the store and this little boy in front of me was buying something for his mother for mothers day. I was behind him about to buy some candy when the cashier told him he needed 2 more dollars. Instead of buying the candy I gave the little boy my last 2 dollars to buy his moter the gift. Afterwards, I felt good about my self but i still wanted the candy. As I was walking out the lady that was standing behind me in the line said it was a nice thing that i had done and she handed me 2 dollars and the candy bar i was about to buy.

    A few years ago, my father and I were in a major car accident. My father was severly injured, and as for me, only a whip lash. If my father did not steer the car away from me, I would have probably died or be permanently disabled like my father. My father was a good samaritan, because he saved my life. If it were not for him, I will probably not be putting this blog.

    I also run cross country. At the tryouts, we were running and a boy fell. He was bleeding on his elbows and knees pretty badly. Me and a few other kids stopped, asked him if he was okay, and helped him up. Even though I was five minutes behind, I still ran well and made the team. Everybody who stopped and helped was rewarded by making the team. It is good to have people who value kindness, especially my coach.

    Not only do You have people who run past and ignore the pain of the other weakened person, then you have people who help them. I think my dad Is a helpful role model to me because him being a fireman heats the whole idea up of being a good samaritan, he is always telling me stories coming home from work about how he saved peoples lives, but yet he has been recognized for it. I'm soo proud of him and what other people do out in this world. (:

    During a bicycle race I swerved to avoid someone else but I hit a large rock and my bike landed on top of me. I couldn't push my bike off of myself because my elbows were badly cut and I couldn't get up because my leg, as I learned afterward, was broken. Some people just passed by me, thinking I could get up myself, but a girl older than me stopped to help me up. She then let sit on her bike while she pulled me back to the start line. Though she lost the race, she did receive a special award and I will always remember her.

    There is this girl that was in our school's marching band last year. She was the band president and the nicest girl I ever met. She was diagnosed with adrenalcortical carcenoma a few weeks before her prom. The hole band and colorguard got together and made the band banquet her prom. Ever since then, every month we will make her a big card that everybody signs and the colorguard dedicates most of their prefomes to her. Every time I see her she has a smile on her face, it seems as if instead of us helping her go on she is helping all of us. I am a member of the colorguard and I am always looking for new ways to help her and I pray for her every night!

    everyday everyone in my family wakes up and we have made a promise to ourselves to fill at least one persons bucket that day even if it is a smile those are the easiest to give
    when i am at the grocery store i am constantly stocking their shelves and help people when they drop their coupons and if i see an older person with a motorcart or having a hard time walking i walk their cart out to their car and take care of their groceriesi missed softball practice once because i was fixated on helping an older woman in her 50s take her groceries out of aldi's it was fun and while i missed practice i still felt fullfilled because i filled somebody's bucket mr. b and mrs. s werent too terribly upset abou it though i did make my sister late too 😦
    btw filling their buckets means that you make them happy and give them some joy because that is what a good christian does 🙂

    One time me and my dad were driving to a bible study when we saw a car swerve in the middle of the intersection. A old lady was driving and she was T-Boned by a huge diesel truck. My dad and i stopped to see if everyone was okay. When we got to the mangled car. The old lady was moaning. Her head was bleeding from hitting the windshield, the bone in her arm was sticking out, and she couldn't move from her waste down. I sat there talking to her to keep her awake until the paramedics got there. The only thing she said to me was tell my grandkids i love them. I kept assuring her everything would be okay. It made feel good knowing that i helped someone, she suffered from a broken arm, and a slight concussion. I visited her and she said thank you for being by her side when she needed someone.

    It was a cold september night. I was finishing up my homework. Then all of a sudden an alarm over my neighborhood went off! There was a tornado. My little sister lily (she was 4 at the time) ran up to me and was crying. I said to her it was going to be all right. My mom and dad were at a party. So me and lily ran downstairs. I called my mom and dad but they did not answer. Lily and I prayed for the tornado to stop. Finally after many of hours it was over. We slept in the basement just to be safe. The next morning there was a lot of damage but everybody was ok! So that day me and my sister helped clean up our neighborhood.

    One time i saw a kid on the playground trying to reach the monkey bars but he couldn't so he climbed the slide and jumped to the monkey bars and fell on his face and his nose started bleeding. I quickly ran to him and wiped the blood from his face with my jacket. Then i carried the 5 year old to his mom who was walking a dog at the other side of the park. She thanked me and took tissues from her purse and handed them to her son. Then she took out a $5 bill and handed it to me but i said,
    " Helping your son was already a wonderful reward." She thanked me again and walked away. I felt like a Good Samaritan that day!

    I'm a chinese.In my country ,there is also a hero named Lei feng who lived in the 50s,20th century .During his short life ,he had helped namerous people who was in trouble or danger.His warmhearted behavior was just like the Good Samaritan described in the Bible.In his dairy ,we can find a spirit called "screw spirit" which means that you will be a great people in mediocre position in case you can work hard in your job and help more people who need help .So ,I hope my foreigner friends can learn more about our chinese Good Samaritan ,Leifeng .

    When Hurricane Irene came I found a dog outside during Irene, it was my neighbors and they were in hysterics when I brought him back.
    They were very grateful.

    I was a good Samaritan when i was in still living in New Jersey, i was at a K-mart with my mom & i noticed a soldier who just recently came home from his station. I told my mom how i feel about any man or women who fights for our country, then she suggested that i went up to him and gave him $20 and a hug. So i did, then i told him thank you and to be safe ❤ it was definitely something i will always remember.

    When my mom was a kid, my grandma would take troubled kids into her home for maybe a week and by the end my mom said they were really different kids. I don't know if I would sacrifice my time for a kid that I barely knew, but she did, and that is an amazing sacrifice to me. The sacrifice of your time is something you can never get back, so it must be freely given.

    I've got a friend who used to be very sick: he suffered from a kidney disease following an accident at the age of 16. He was dependent on a large machine from which he could never be seperated. He had a twin who decided to end his brother's suffering so he volunteered to give him a kidney. Everything is alright now and the boy who used to be in pain is extremely grateful to his brother. This is the most significant sacrifice I've ever witnessed...

    My dad and I were driving on the way home and we saw two men on the side of the road stranded. He was the coolest dad ever that day. The two men had been there a while and since my dad is an electrician he could help them, no problem. So we talked to the guys and my dad asked if they needed some help with their car and they said “Yes.” It turns out that their car had a dead battery so my dad got out the plugs that put some of the energy in our car into their car. While the converting was happening my dad and the guys were talking and I was playing my iPod Touch in the car. When the conversion was done the two men handed out some money and my dad said, “I don’t want your money.” We all shook hands and my dad and I drove off and I said, “Dad why did we help those two men”? He answered, “Because it was the right thing to do.

    My friend’s mom was running a 5k with me. I got really tired, my side started to hurt; she stopped her race and walked it with me for the remainder of the race. She ran it with me and she got the same time as I did instead of her getting her own time.

    My dad was driving down a road when he saw a family that was homeless. My dad didn’t have any money but that day it was a payday for him at his work. After his job ended for the day he was driving back home when he saw them starving so my dad kept a loaf of bread in his car. He stopped on the side of the road and he got out the loaf of bread then he gave the loaf of bread to the homeless people, they said thank you. My dad thought he was very generous to the homeless people. He was really happy that he did that after that time. I thought that it was very generous that he gave the loaf of bread to the homeless people.

    The best example of a Good Samaritan I know of is my dad. He always takes time out of his day to help others who are less fortunate, no matter how tired he is or how many other things he has to do. One time, he found out an acquaintance in another state was really sick and not able to work. He packed a cooler full of food and gave that and some money for the acquaintance to a friend going to see him. I really respect my dad; he gives so much service to so many people, and never for anything in return.

    It was a sunday morning. Our school director proposed us to come and run to get some money for research on a serious disease that can reach anyone at birth. I know that this has been organised since i am in my new school, but i have never ran since it was taking place on a sunday morning, but this year, I decided to go and run 35 kilometers. It took three hours and a half and i haven't been able to walk for three days after that. At the end of the day i felt really happy but very tired.

    When my sister was three years old we got a pool. She did not know how to swimm yet , but she still wanted to jump in. Whenever my parents were not looking she jumped in. I was six and i knew how to swim. I jumped in and yelled at my dad. My dad helped me pull her out. That made me feel really good inside. After we pulled her out we dried her off and she was just fine.

    I guess the best "Good samaritan action" i've ever done was when at the fun house when I was with my little brother. He was dreaming of having a ride on the merry-go-round, but the only thing was that it costed 5 tickets and he had only 3. I had 2, but I wanted to buy me a cotton candy. He said that it was fine, that he understood, but I realized he was so disappointed and of course, I gave him mine. So, he could do his merry-go-round, and when he went out, he gave me a great hug and told me "Thank you !". And at that moment, I thought that this great smile was a hundred time better than 2 tickets or even than a cotton candy !!!

    Yesterday It was this man walking with crunches at the bottom of my street. It looked like both his legs were messed up so me and my cousin went down there to help him. By the time we got there he was half way so we just helped him the rest of the way. He said Thank You then we left.

    What the racer did was a great, big sacrifice. I am a cross country runner so if i was running a race, and saw an injured runner on the ground then I to would stop running to help him/her. I would be so thankful to another runner if i was injured or hurt, and I couldn't run anymore,and if they helped me I would be so happy, and grateful that I would make sure they got the recognition they deserve.

I took it to my dads and it took off, I was sad but I didn't blame my mom because she never told me to get rid of it instead I decided to myself. I sacrificed my cat to help my mom get better.

    One day, I went skiing with my family and a group of friends. We had taken a guide who could lead us off piste and we were all enjoying our ride. My father accidentally teared a muscle in his leg in the morning, but he told us it was fine, he wanted to continue. Actually, he told us at the end of our day that his muscle was torn and we realised how much he had suffered during our skiing journey. To me this is the kindest sacrifice he could do, because in spite of his injury he stayed with and he was just happy to see us having all this fun.

    My "good samaritan" story isn't an incredible one, still I beleive it counts as a good deed.
    I was about seven years old and my dad was driving me to my friends birthday party ( we were extremely late ).
    My dad was driving on a small countryside road and suddenly, on the right side of the road, I saw a turtle that had fell and was upside-down ( she was on her shell ). I shouted for my father to stop and told him to do a u-turn so that I could save the turtle. He did what I asked him to do, and I took the small, adorable turlte in my arms, put her back down far away from the road and went back to the car.
    I did arrive late to the birthday party, but I felt a huge sensation of satisfaction thinking about the sacrifice I had done to save that turtle!

    One of my friends lost his little sister last year. She was suffering from a serious illness that was killing her day after day since her birth.
    A mass was given in her memory. I went to that mass, skiping spare time and lunch time to pray for her and her family, even though I never saw her.
    I wrote my friend a letter to show him my support and let him know that I would'nt let him down.
    I also spent several breaks at school with him to talk if he wanted to.
    When we were on a school trip where he could'nt go because he had to attend his sister's funeral, we all took some time to write to him on a postcard everywhere we went.

    One day, I was on the beach, with my two little sisters. It was a wonderful day, I was sleeping on the sand, and my sisters, were playing volley with their friends. Once was very small, and young. He was, 4, I think. He didn't know how to swim, and I had not seen that he was even playing in the sea. My sister, Selma, threw the ball, she wanted him to catch it. But, he was so surprised, that the ball smashed his head. My sisters, and the other kids, were just laughting, and they didn't see that he was disepearing in the water. I woke up at this moment, saw him, and ran. I caugh his hair, and pull. He was safe, but I was worried. What would have happened if I had not get up? Now, when my sisters go on the beach with me, I play with them.

    Honsetly , i think anything i might say is going to sound boring . I can't think of one original example that I could give . It's either because my life is so full of kindness and wonderful people , or because on the other hand it's plain boring . I think I like the first option better .
    However , I remember that last year , our friends and I were walking in a place pretty crowded , and a guy dropped to the floor . My friend , who was only 14 then , called the closest hospital immediatly , and once she heard them come , she just left . I really started looking up to her then , because she had probably saved a man's life , but took no credit for it .
    I think that's what made it so special . Even if what she had done wasn't extraordinary , it was still good for a girl her age , and yet she never boasted about it .
    So , I think that we can see acts of kindness everywhere , but the ones that are truly memorable are the ones accomplished by people who are plain nice .

    One day, at my summer camp, when i was jogging around with two friends and a counsolor, i suddenly fell on the ground and twisted my ankle. Therefore, one of the girl assisted me and walked me home for one mile. Besides, she missed the lunch for me. I thought it was really kind and beneficient.

    First of all, I would say that most of the greatest acts of kindness are those you can see in your everyday life.However there are some acts which are both kind and memorable ...
    Therefore, I would to tell you about one of those:
    I was walking down the street in the hazy morning, apparently this day tended to be like any others. Surprisingly, it became one of the most memorable days of my life. Effectively,while going down the stairs which lead to the tube I saw that a man helping a woman who fainted.Actually ,I think that this was the most kind act I've ever seen because if this guy hadn't been there perhaps everyone would have passed by this woman even without noticing her....
    Eventually , I'm under the impression that this man was actually
    a modern good samaritan.

    there was one time when my fellow classmates and I where playing soccer. I was playing defense and someone came up with the ball from the other team. I tied to block the ball but then the classmate passed me and tried to make a goal. The goalie did a great job on not makig the goal. It hit his hands and I went to go and help him but the everyone else went to help and the teacher came over and the teacher took him to the nurse. He broke his arm. when he came back to school two days later everyone signed his cast. In my opinion I think that he liked all the attention.

    My cousin plays tennis, and had a train to go to a particularly important tennis competition. But as it was time for my cousin to leave from the house, his brother got badly hurt with a knife as he tried to strip a wire with the knife. Then my cousin cancelled his tournament to be with his brother while he was at hospital.

    At my hockey practice we had other coaches watching to see if we could make the better team. We were scrimmaging and I was defense. There was a girl who wasn't the best at playing hockey who was skating with the puck down the ice. I was the only one to stop her before she could shoot on our goalie which was 3 cones. I tripped over the ice purposely so she could have a chance to score. Even though I missed a chance to be on a better team I helped somebody feel better about their self which makes me happy.

    Something good I did for others was in middleschool and I was the only one in my math class to pass the test. Instead of bragging about it and rubbing it in everyone's faces, I helped my classmates understand what they did wrong so they can learn from their mistakes and do well on the next test.

    In first grade, near Halloween, we dressed up in our costumes and walked to a Nursing Home near our school. There, we walked around the Home and sang and danced for the people there. You could tell it made their day.
    My bus passes the Nursey Home everyday. If there's ever someone sitting outside, I wave. They need someone to do something small but loving. They are probably in a lot of pain and don't have any grandkids that see them often.

    The one who was bleeding could have died by bleeding to death so this was a big deal.
    I helped someone walk to the bus when their legs were fractured. this was not as big because someones life was on the line.If you think about it many lifes were on the line.If someone triped over him they could end up in his situation.Thankyou who ever helped him,you are a true person.

    On day at the hospital they had an old woman in a wheelchair in the hallway, all the nurses and patient visitors passed on her. Obviously, you could have tell that she was asking for something so I gently held her hand and she said all I wanted was a little love. So I gave the old woman, a complete stranger, a hug like she was my own relative.

    One time I did a food drive at my church. We raised over $200, and it made me feel good that we donated all that food and money to charity. It felt good to help. I think that we could make a difference in the owrld if everyone donated even a little bit to a local charity.

    My Mother is an RN (Registered Nurse) so she is medically trained. One day we were coming home from camping and we saw a person lying on the side of the road. We stopped to see if he was okay. He wasn't; He had broken his arm in 7 different places, he broke his ankle, and dislocated his hip. The man got hit by a car well riding his motorcycle.He had to be taken to the hospital in a helicopter. He is alright thanks to my Mother. She truly is a Good Samaritan!

    Sometimes my dog gets loose. I love my dog and I cry a river when he gets out sometimes. He is the most important thing in the world to me, my pride and joy. One time he ran out and he was alomst hit by a car. I was too shocked and paralyzed to do anything. But much to my luck my friend happened to walk outside and see my dog. He bolted as fast as he could and pushed my dog out of the way. The car was about 12 feet away when my friend got out of the street. I was so happy neither of them got hurt.

    This story struck me hard becaus i was in a similar situation. Back when i was in 8th grade, i hated a girl named kortney. we could never agree on anything and we absolutely dispised each other but then one day in gym class we were running the mile for the physical fittness test when i fell and broke my ankle.... my friends asked if i was okay i said yes so they kept going. Kortney stopped and helped me back to the start. after that we became close friends.

    During one of the most rewardind trips of my life to Marocco 6 years ago, I met a little girl who was about six years old and lived in a house in the countryside, made out of dirt, with no electricity or running water and with a donckey instead of a car. I stayed one night in her house and we became friends (even if we didn't speak the same language). I felt pity for her because she didn't have any toys or dolls to play with, so I gave her a little pink poney that my best friend had given to me for my 3rd birthday. She was extremely touched by my present and I felt so proud that I even forgot that I loved this poney more than any toy on earth, it made me happy to see her happy and this moment was unforgettable !

    To be honest just yesterday weI went and helped another little kindergardener to the nurse after falling down on the concrete.When we got him he was very angry from who ever had did something to him.
    As we were walking him to the nurse all he did was cry. He also was limping on his right leg. We both asked him if he would allow us to carry him to possibly stop some of the pain in his foot. Sadly he did not allow us to.
    When he was at the nurse we found out that had been followed by almost of the smaller children that had saw him.
    So to us we think that all of the people that saw what happened and came along to make sure he was okay was really good at being as our school moto is caring, responsible, and respectful. thanks every one out there who helps to make this world better than what it was a day before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):):):):):):):):):)::):):):):):D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

She was about to cross the finish line when all of the sudden a girl tripped someone and the girl she tripped and sprained her wrist. My friend ran back to that girl. Meanwhile the other girl finished first. The girl that sprained her wrist was me.

    There a lot of people in the world who are good samaritans. I would like to the mention the little ones. Like the other day I was to class the bell had rang when someone ran down the hallway bumping into me and knocking my binder and books on he ground my papers flew everywhere. One girl I have never met came and even though we were both late she helped me track down all of my stuff. I never did get a chance to thank her.

The fundraiser donated money for "Our Companions," which is an organization that takes in stray dogs and cats and trys to find homes for them and nurtures them back to health. We raised over $210.00 dollars to donate to "Our Companions" and a lot of cat food which they needed.Two donated a bunch of toys that went to the Canton/Avon animal pound.I was happy that i did this for the cats and dogs, i just love them soo much.
