Dear Pamela,

My husband started to collapse when we were leaving Zippy’s in Hawaii Kai.

Two young men were driving by and ran to help us. They managed to lift my husband into the car and suggested we go to the Hawaii Kai firehouse, which we did. I don’t know how we could have managed without their help. Just wanted to thank them for their caring. Lucky we live Hawaii!

Aloha Pamela,

We lost a letter with photos and money in Aina Haina outside the post office. A young man who fills the newspaper container there picked up the letter and dropped it in the mailbox. This past week my family called from Muskagee, Okla. They got the letter intact from this honest young man. Thank you and God bless.

Dear Pamela,

I fell down at Mililani Cemetery while getting out of a car. I had abrasions on my arm and bumps on my forehead. A very kind, concerned lady in a green car came to help me. She lifted me up while a man came running down the hill and helped me back into the car. I’m fine now and would like to thank the lady and man. I didn’t get their names, but I want to say mahalo.

Aloha Pamela,

After I finished hula in Manoa, I realized I had a flat tire halfway home to Moiliili. York, from Pohnpei, a junior at UH in marine studies, helped me change the flat tire. John from Manoa assisted and Kealoha let us borrow his flashlight. Their generosity of time and effort that evening is appreciated. Many blessings from this damsel in distress!

Dear Lei, Delores, Stanley and Puamana,

It is the best part of our human nature to extend a hand to those in need. Very often the smallest of gestures have the biggest of impacts, as your anonymous angels have demonstrated with their acts of kindness.
