It was a very hot summer day when Herman Trueblood was walking home
from a cool dip in the ocean when he noticed a man perspiring
profusely as he was trying with the help of his two young sons to
push his broken-down car up an incline.

Trueblood looked at the struggling trio and said to himself, "Here is
an opportunity for service. You ought to give them a hand." An
opposing voice chimed in, "No, it's none of your business. You'll get
yourself all hot and dirty. Let them take care of their own

Eventually he yielded to the better impulse, put his shoulder to the
task and together they pushed the car over the incline and on its way.

Before they took off, the father, putting his hand out to Trueblood,
said, "I'm very glad that you came along. You had just enough
strength, added to ours, to make the thing go."

Trueblood noted, "Years have passed since that hot day, but I can
still hear that man saying, 'You had just enough strength, added to
ours, to make the thing go.'"

There are numerous people around us who are barely making it over
their private hill of despair when, with a helping hand, they could
make it.
