This should have been the lead story for all the news outlets. This is precisely what this world needs, more Good Samaritans. "I lift thee and thee lift me and together we ascend." I hope all who read this story will be the genesis for Paying it Forward everyday. And for everyone reading this comment, I pray that you and your family will be given every good blessing that the Lord holds in store for you. Have a great day!

In referencing to the movie or book versions of this concept the pay it forward does not really apply in saving someones life or turning a life around to compare this event with.

Its more of a chain letter where one person sends money to many other people and so on. Its a good gestures though and I've thought of doing this at times but I didn't think people would take to it kindly in the wrong place or circumstance I was at. Being impersonal and anonymous is easier for this kind of generosity, and only americans could have kept the chain going so its a testament to the American standards of social respect we have.
