People in West Seattle really care about each other

My name is MaryAnn Scott.

I am new to West Seattle, originally from Southern California.

Though I think West Seattle is one of the most beautiful places ever, this holiday season is particularly hard for me. I am not only away from my family but I know literally one person here. That person is the kind property manager that rented us our home!! Sad but true!!

This morning while leaving the Met Market, I was feeling rather down. I was stopped at a red light.

In the middle of the intersection a car was stopped. Soon an elderly lady slowly got out of her car and attempted to push it out of the busy street. I was so upset by what I saw. I started to get out to help, looked up and was amazed.....

Within less than 30 seconds, people literally were running from all directions to rescue this stranded senior. I counted 13 people, young and old running toward her with smiles on their faces. I couldn't stop the tears that ran down my face. It was such a refreshing sight to see. Suddenly I didn't feel so alone.

Thank you West Seattle, for taking care of each other!! I hope to meet more of you soon.

Happy Holidays,
MaryAnn Scott
