I would like to thank the citizens of Arlington for what happened Tuesday, Oct. 25.
I was walking down my daughters sidewalk and fell. I landed on my hand and knocked the wind out of myself. Before I could get up, there were no less than five or more people standing around me and asking if I was okay. These people were driving down the street or possibly walking on the other side of the street, but they made an effort to see that I was okay, or really was in need of medical attention.
This goes to show that small town USA is still alive and well in Arlington, and people there still care about their fellow man.
Thank you to all of you that stopped or who would have had they been in the area. You live in a great place.
