Looking for “The Kindness of Strangers” short pieces

Kindess of Strangers

One of the recurring things we hope to have in the book is a series of vignettes called “The Kindness of Strangers” in which we briefly recount those moments at which Koreans came in and helped us out of tough situations.

Example – when my (then) fiancee fell in Daejeon and fractured her elbow and middle-aged man and two business students swooped in, helped her get into a cab, and gave the cab driver detailed descriptions of which hospital to take us to.

As usual, we’re not promising riches (though we are working on it) rather a publication credit in a real book, in two real languages, with a real ISBN. You know, suitable for making your mom happy when she’s trying to explain to her friends back home exactly what you are doing in Korea.^^
