Compassion - Sunita Mehta

3 feet everything! 

Hey! how old can he be...was the first thought that came to mind when I saw a  hooded three feet nothing walking down the road that cold foggy morning. My frantic eyes searched for an adult. Should I stop? Should I report the matter at the police post around the corner? Should I just wait there for a while?

This is no time for someone so young to be on this lonely stretch of road. I looked for a turn to go back. The rearview mirror adjusted as far as the eye could see, I slowed down. Suddenly, he was nowhere to be seen! 

Headlines flashed before me...I had to help. I turned and stepped on the gas. Everything sinister than I had ever heard of or read about came rushing by, only to come to a grinding halt. There he was, my little hooded runaway, nestling a pup under his jacket, returning the puppy to its mother. All of them, cocooned world of their own! After all, goodness still exists in this world.
