Letter to the editor: UK students’ kindness a pleasant surprise

I felt the need to comment on the surprising behavior of two UK students Sunday evening.

I was called to help my daughter after a vehicle accident on Waller Avenue. When I arrived, there seemed to be a few young people loitering near the scene of this busy intersection, some students out cleaning up yards from the football game parties. Two young ladies were sitting with my daughter — they had been behind her and had witnessed the crash.

I was kind of stunned that there, at the corner of “Drunk and Rowdy,” these girls just returning from a Christian church retreat insisted on waiting with us because it was the right thing to do.

We are cynical of the religious to our own detriment — the thought of a campus, or a city, filled with this kind of simple selflessness inspires me. Thank you, kind young students.
