Deputy’s actions brought tears to my eyes

By November 17, 2010

EDITOR:

On a quiet Sunday morning I observed an elderly woman in a walker, walking our corner of Forni Road and Lindberg. I was concerned because I have never seen this woman (I’m a stay-at-home mom) and this corner is very dangerous. Almost daily do I hear vehicles take this corner at unsafe speeds, hit the gravel, screeching and sliding.

Long story short, an El Dorado County sheriff’s deputy pulled up behind the woman and was talking with her. Whether someone reported their loved one missing or he was ding a kind deed, it brought tears to my eyes. He helped her into the car and carried her walker. He was kind, patient and compassionate. I could hear how he spoke with her.

I don’t have my parents or grandparents anymore but someone’s loved one was cared for and is safe back home.

Amazingly, I am teaching my 5-year-old who I am home-schooling a lesson on being a good citizen. I now have a new lesson to share with him.
