Post-Baseball Game Act of Kindness Moves the Internet
In this age, watching the news about quarrel and chaos can be exhausting. Good thing there are still a lot of good people out there who serve as valuable inspiration and reminder of basic humanity and kindness. In this case, a very simple act of kindness displayed by a young Chicago woman caught the attention of the media.
The story unfolds when diner Ryan Hamilton was casually enjoying his meal on the rooftop of Old Crow Smokehouse, which he later found to be the perfect spot to catch a good deed in action. He managed to capture the moment with his trusted camera, and later posted the photo on Facebook.
On his lengthy caption, Ryan wrote: “Wanted to give a shout-out to this girl. No idea who she is… but there was a blind Cubs fan trying to hail a cab for several minutes until the lady came up and asked him if he needed help hailing a cab. She stood there with him until one pulled up. Awesome to see such kindness in a world that the media portrays so much hate in. Share freely in hopes that her kindness spreads.”
It turns out that the blind Cubs fan Yusef Dale was coming out of the Wrigley Field after his team’s thrilling 5-3 win against St. Louis Cardinals. His otherwise futile attempt to hail a cab lasted several minutes before a young lady comes up to him and courteously offering him a helping hand. Dale gladly accepted and, as seen in the series of photographs, the woman stood by him hailing a taxi until one finally pulled up.
Her unassuming demeanor received the high praise and appreciation of Dale, who said: “She did not presume I was incompetent or unable … she didn’t get in my personal space and most importantly, she didn’t touch me, which is an issue for some people with disabilities.”
The unidentified woman was later on revealed to be 36-year-old Casey Spelman, who humbly shrugged off her good deed as something anyone and everyone can and should do.
