I parked my car in an outdoor lot. I forgot to roll up my window, because my mind, as always, must’ve been on other things. I came back a long time later — many, many, many days later. Look what a perfect stranger had done for me, in my absence. Look at the beautiful poem of love that is this note: “Your window was down and the rain was coming. I did my best to help you out. xx — The green truck next to you.” By the time I saw this note, the green truck was long gone. I will never know who did this for me. But I love you. Thank you for taking the time to do this kind act for a stranger. I’m sitting here in my parked car, unable to drive because there are tears in my eyes. I am reminded once more of this sacred truth: Never doubt that thousands of invisible hands are helping you at all times. Love is everywhere, even if you can’t see it. The tenderest care will arrive when you least expect it, and from someone whose name you may never know. Thank you, Green Truck. Thank you.❤️ post by Elizabeth Gilbert

Florida Prom-Bound Teens Exit Limo to Rescue Car Crash Victims
Decked out in tuxedos and ball gowns, 20 prom-bound high school seniors and their limousine driver came to the rescue after a van overturned on a Florida highway.
The well-dressed students managed to pull seven passengers from the van Saturday and make it to just 15 minutes late, limousine driver Danny Izzi told ABCNews.com.
The students were traveling on Interstate 595 to their prom at the Westin Hotel on Fort Lauderdale beach when the van, which was in front of the limousine, began swerving, Izzi said.
“When it hit the wall and turned over, I was right behind it,” Izzi said.
He hit the brakes and got out of the car to help.
Frank Tucker, a football player at Western High School in Davie, Fla., said the students had no idea why they had come to a stop until he peeked out the window.
“I saw the bottom of the van,” he told ABCNews.com. “We kind of reacted to it, ran out of the limo and did what we had to do.”
Izzi and the teens braved blood and broken glass to pull five adults, a 9-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl to safety.
Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol said the girl was not wearing a seat belt, but she and the other passengers suffered only minor injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was charged with failure to use due care and a child restraint violation, he said.
When ambulances arrived to take the victims to the hospital, the teens continued to the prom, arriving 15 minutes late and a bit disheveled.
Tucker’s girlfriend, Krista Pulcini, had blood all over her gown, he said, but she managed to wash it off and continue on for the evening.
“It was a good prom,” he said. “Everybody had a story to tell.”
