This coin was given to a special gentleman about two weeks ago. He was maneuvering his wheelchair down a busy street because the sidewalks were not shoveled out from the snow.
I stopped my car behind him and pushed him the rest of the way to the bus stop - making sure that no one hit him. When I helped him get on the corner and out of the way of traffic, I decided to stay with him and wait for that bus.
We had a great conversation, and when we finally got him on the bus - I handed him this coin. He started tearing up, and said that this coin was one of the best things that he has ever received.
Whether he pays it forward and gives it to another person, is his decision. Knowing that I made a difference in someone's life, even if it was for an hour - is the best feeling ever.
