Dear Editor,

We have gotten through another terrific snowstorm with much difficulty, but we did survive.

But not without help from the many acts of kindness from strangers and good neighbors. I believe when things are at their very worst, we are at our very best. There were many acts of kindness by neighbors and strangers.

I even met a man in a store a few blocks from my apartment who told me he braved the snow and walked to the store for an elderly neighbor who needed food. I myself have bad knees due to arthritis and traveled to the store for my wife with my cane as an aid.

I couldn't walk in the street because it was too dangerous with cars, trucks and buses traveling to and fro, and walked on the sidewalk that was not yet cleared. As I was doing so a Glen Oaks worker who was shoveling the snow to clear a path with his co-worker saw I was having trouble and told me to place my hand on his shoulder so I could step down to a clear portion of the sidewalk.

For the many acts of kindness from neighbors and strangers alike, I say thank you for all you did in a most difficult situation.
