Young nursing student shows us the way

  • Print

It was very cold and windy and I had an eye-doctor appointment in Island Lakes. This was a very unfamiliar part of the city to me, so my friend Cathy came with me on the bus.

We were on the No. 75 bus and very nervous about where we would get off, when the young lady sitting next to me looked at the address and said we would be getting off at the same stop as she would. She showed us how far we would have to walk, especially across Bishop Grandin Boulevard, at 4:45 p.m.

Cathy and I made it to our destination with great difficulty and anxiety.

We were grateful to the young woman for showing us how to get to the office, as we would not have found it without her guidance.

When I came out of the doctor’s office, I noticed a young girl talking to Cathy. She looked just like the young girl on the bus and sure enough, it was! She had gone home and told her mother how worried she was about the two older women she had met on the bus. Then she got the car and came looking for us. She found us just in time and insisted on driving us home, which was practically across town in rush hour.

We were overwhelmed by her kindness.

She is a second-year nursing student at the U of M. We think her name is Kaelin.

We are very grateful to Kaelin. The nursing profession is blessed to have this young woman.

We will always remember her kindness.

— Patricia McInnis and Cathy
