The tender side of Madrid

Last night on my way to community group, God showed me the generosity and beauty of the people of Madrid.

While I was on the metro, a woman got on who was trying to earn some money by serenading people (this happens quite often). Usually people look away and ignore these people (sometimes me included) but this time I saw many many people hand her coins. A young cool guy standing near me dug in his pocket AND his wallet to give her something. Wow.

Then, when I was about to turn onto Holy Spirit Street, an elderly woman fell in the entry-way of a building. People came RUNNING from several directions to help her up, dust her off and ensure that she was OK.

My heart swelled.
