Stranded On The Highway

One night, at 11:30 PM, it is told that an older African-American woman was stranded on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she was in desperate need of a ride.

Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her — generally unheard of in the conflict-filled 1960's. The man drove her to safety, helped her get assistance for the broken down car, and put her into a taxi cab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry. Yet, she took the time to write down his address, thanked him, and drove away.

Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant combination console color TV and stereo record player was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. The note read:

Dear Mr. James: Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes but also my spirits.

Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for unselfishly serving others.

Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.
