Dear Man in the Supermarket Parking lot,
Thanks for taking my cart back inside today just because you happened to be walking in that direction.

Dear Elderly German couple,
Thank you for picking my husband and me up when we were walking to the train station in the rain with our bags. Maybe you don't technically count as strangers because we met you in a restaurant a few days before that. We enjoyed talking to you and ultimately sharing a meal with you at that bar beside the river. Our encounter was brief, but as you can see, your kindness hasn't been forgotten.
