The other night I was on my way home from a hectic day and failed to notice that I was low on gas.

As I was driving up Forsythe Road in Scott, the car just quit. Since it was 5 p.m,, you can imagine the traffic backed up behind me.

Within minutes, a young couple in the car right behind got out to help me. She was wearing a hijab and he had a beard, and they both had a very calm and comforting demeanor. He instructed me to put my window down, and then he pushed the car while also turning the steering wheel, which I wasn’t able to turn.

They managed to push me into a church parking lot and then pulled their car in after mine. I didn’t have a phone with me, so they gave me theirs and showed me how to use it, politely stepping away to give me privacy as I called my son.

I’m 87, and every day I’m thankful to have my children’s support when I need them. But on this day, I was also grateful to meet two such kind young people who are part of a new generation of Pittsburgh residents. You can be sure I will be forever thankful and I will pay it forward.
