I can't remember when it was but sometime between the years of 2004 and 2006 I was biking to a friends place in Kits from my place on Main St. I biked between 6th and Heather and 6th and Willow. There used to be a video store and a grocery store on the corner. I was biking and heard "Help." "Help Me" I stopped and got off my bike and walked to see a woman on the ground and she had fallen and could not get up. No one was around. I ran in the grocery store and asked the staff to call 911. The police arrived and took her to the hospital. The police asked for my name and number and I was in a hurry and did not give it to them. I wonder what happened to her. I wonder if anyone in her family was happy I did that. I was broke and jobless. Maybe I should have left my name. If anyone reads this and knows of this incident (or family) it would be nice to connect. That is my confession.
