Marilyn Attebery, Washington — I was driving home in a blizzard when I noticed a vehicle tail me. Suddenly, my tire blew and I pulled off the road. So did the other car.

Sheela Mayes, Louisiana — Children were playing at IKEA when my 5-year-old granddaughter motioned for a small boy to stop. She knelt down before him and retied his shoelaces. No words were spoken, but after she finished, both smiled shyly and raced off in different directions.
