Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

The last Download from God™ was, Just Like Heaven

This morning's Musical DLG™ (Download from God™) called, 'Help' by The Beatles reminded me of an encounter I had with a man on the Metrolink (train) platform over 10 years ago. I was catching the train with my bicycle going out to the suburbs to visit my grandson. This was long before I had met my Scorpion King. I had a full backpack because I didn't know if I would be coming home that night or in the morning, so I packed my laptop and few overnight items. As I was waiting for the train and holding on to my bicycle, a piece from my basket fell onto the ground. There was a man was standing right next to me with nothing in his hands who looked at the item when it hit the ground. I said, "Sir, can you grab that for me?"

He looked sternly at me and said, "You can get that?"

I said, "Yes sir I could, but my backpack is really heavy and I'm holding my bike." You see my backpack was so heavy that leaning over and holding my bike would have surely tipped me over.

He came closer to me with his palms up and his hands stretched out and said, "Look! One time I was holding groceries in both hands and I couldn't open a door. No one helped ME!"

I responded, "Really? So now I'm paying for what happened to you? It's my fault? That's quite alright sir because you just just showed me who you are. That's alright, I'll get it.

He yelled, "No one helped ME!"

I said again, "Sir! It's okay, you just showed me who you are. It's okay!"

The man just stood there thinking and then began pacing back and forth as if he was back in that moment when no one helped him. Whoever it was that chose not to help this man certainly had a heavy impact on him. Folks, never underestimate the influence you have on others.

As the train pulled up and I rolled on with my bike, the man stepped on after me and took a seat. Since I had the bike, I positioned myself so that I could hold on to my bike and hold the hand bar at the same time. I was faced in the man's direction and he was seated about three rows away facing my direction. In order to keep myself from thinking negative thoughts, because I can do that as easily as the next person, I kept my head bowed and just started praying for the whole situation because I can certainly get mouthy if I don't control myself, so I opted to pray for both of us.

At the next stop two teenage girls got on and were just giggling, laughing and being cute. I Love seeing people of any age having fun, smiling and just enjoying Life. One girl borrowed the cell phone of the other girl. As we came up to the next stop, the girl on the cell phone positioned herself in such a way that when the doors were closing she was forced off the train and on to the platform. The girls started squealing in laughter. Everyone on the train laughed. It really was funny! As the train pulled away, the other girl still laughing went to sit down directly across the aisle from the man who would not help me. A woman had sat next to him on the previous stop so he was next to the window. The young girl said, "She has my cell phone and now I can't call home." The woman seated next to the man reached into her purse, pulled out her cell phone and she said, "Here, you can use mine."
