Too often I am the person (like the Levite and Priest in the Good Samaritan story) who sees and hears about someone who is suffering, and passes by on the other side of the street. One of those times was just three weeks ago. Larry, my husband, and I were walking a bike path, and suddenly I saw ahead this person all bent over doing something…
