I am so happy to see that there are still kind neighbors in Menlo park. The gift to replace a boys bike taken from him at the skate park was wonderful. I see many houses resell over and over. Families come and go before we even have a chance to know them
I hope we can use this as an example to try and keep are neighborhoods safe and friendly. We are so lucky to live in this area. We Need to protect our kids and future generations.

Thank you, kind Samaritan, for giving *all* of us a smile and a reminder of how much good there is all around. I'm sure you've made a large difference in the way the 14-year-old boy will see the world as he continues into adulthood. This story has made my afternoon.
