I had a very unusual experience recently on the streets of Los Angeles (Central City) and I would like to share it. A purse snatcher knocked me down and ran off with my purse. A man who saw it ran after the thief, retrieved my purse and returned it to me. I offered him money for his brave and kind deed, but he wouldn't accept it. It is very comforting to know there are still such selfless people on earth.
