A Random Act of Kindness in the NYC Subway
I am a busker (street performer) in the NYC subway. I was playing at the Times Square subway station when this happened.
There were a few people standing around me listening, including a blind man on my right. As I played, his face lit up. It was obvious he was enjoying what he was hearing.
On my left there was a woman who had nothing to do with the blind man. They were two strangers who happened to walk by me at the same time. The woman, too, noticed the joy on the blind man’s face.
She came over to me, purchased one of my CDs, went over to the blind man, put the CD in his hand and said: “This is the music you are listening to now. This is for you.”
She spent her own money to buy a present for a stranger!
To have my music be the impetus for such an extraordinary act of kindness—that was a priceless experience for me.
