Available at N/Warren Town & County News office Tuesday-Friday 9a.m. to 1p.m. To the Editor: I moved up to Norwalk from Alabama this past September. As you can imagine, the move was exciting and I was also quite nervous. My fianc6 is a Norwalk native and has always talked about how nice Iowans were. I was worried about being accepted into the Norwalk and other Iowan communities but the transition was quite pleasant. I was very astounded about how friendly everyone was! There was one event in particular that really struck me in the heart and made the true characteristic of being Iowan stand out to me. New Year's Eve afternoon my work let out early, as did most places. The weather was a typical Iowan winter afternoon complete with slick roads, freezing temperatures, and icy sidewalks. Since it was New Year's Eve, I thought it would be nice to pick up a famous Casey's taco pizza! I had never heard nor tried a taco pizza but everyone told me I had to try it since I now lived in Iowa. While getting out of my car I saw an elderlj7 woman coming out all bundled up from head to toe. Her arms were full of groceries and she was trying to be so careful as not to slip on the icy sidewalk trying to get to her car. A man promptly jumped out of his car and walked over to the woman, grabbed her milk and other groceries with ease, and helped her to her car. From the conversation I briefly heard between them they did not know each other. The kindness and care he took in order to help this elderly lady really struck me in the heart. I watched as he made sure her groceries were put away and she got in her vehicle safely. She thanked the man and drove away. As he turned around, making his way back into his car, I told him how his act of unselfishness really hit me in the heart and how wonderful that was of him to help someone out he didn't even know. I'll never forget the words he said to me. He held his head up high and stated, "Well of course! That's what it means to be IowanI" I'll never know who this man was, but if there was one moment anyone could have defined what it was to be Iowan, he did it with his actions that day. Those words really touched my soul and I felt happy and proud to live in a community, and state, where there is still pride being taught on how to treat everyone with thoughtfulness. Thank you, Norwalk Iowa, for being such a gentle and kind hearted town! /s/ Carla Riddle ** NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS ** Li Retirement ] 313 Wright Road, Norwalk I Bedroom Apartments Park-like Setting Community Center 24/7 Maintenance Rental Assistance May Be Available to Those Who Qualify 62 Years of Age or Older, Disabled Regardless of Age www.national'management.com This institution is an Equal Opportunity Provider.
