On July 2, I was leaving the Edgartown Stop & Shop with an overloaded basket of groceries. As I was navigating the ramp into the parking lot, the basket capsized and all my purchases were strewn across the ground. Five wonderful people, unknown to me, swiftly gathered up my purchases, replaced them in the basket, and assisted me in getting the carriage and extra bundles safely delivered to my car. One person even replaced my broken eggs with fresh ones.

I want to publicly thank these very gracious people for their kindness and generosity of spirit. It is heartwarming to know there are people like these in the world who were willing to help a total stranger in a difficult situation. Where but on Martha’s Vineyard?
