A stranger's care transcends a language barrier
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
My elderly Iranian parents have managed to live in New York City for over twenty years without speaking English. My sister lives several hours away and I live in London. So when a car backed into them as they crossed the street near their apartment in November of 2004 they felt a million miles from home and family. Critically injured, they were rushed to an intensive care unit.
It would take my sister several hours to travel to the hospital, and it would be five days before I could travel to see my parents. I immediately took comfort in prayer since there was nothing else I could do.
