ONE Saturday night, IN Hinchingbrooke Country Park car park, my car would not start. I had no phone, and it was getting dark.

Around the corner came two suped-up cars, filled with passengers and drove right up beside my car. Out jumped the driver, followed by his friends and offered to help jumpstart my car.

Thank-you to them for not judging me by my appearance, for their unconditional care,

and thank you to the youth of today for being you.

In my experience this has been the norm. The majority of them have their hearts in the right places. I have met many who, if I am perfectly honest, have looked more than a little scary but have come to my help without even being asked.
