From my blog:

Lonnie KleinmanA nun saved my life.

I was walking near the old city and about to cross the street when she stuck out her hand and grabbed me by the arm to stop me from walking in front of a speeding car.

I, frazzled and grateful, said “thank you so much.”

She, humble and quiet, continued on as if nothing had happened.

I am often reminded of the compassion and good that religion brings to our world.
