Title : Soldier holds umbrella for elderly man who was caught in the rain while waiting for cab
Summary : A kind soldier was seen sheltering an elderly man, who was waiting for a taxi, from the pouring rain on Monday morning.
Response : I felt proud of the soldier's kindness towards the elderly. The soldier, Mr Ang, had the initiative to approach Mr Pargan whose wife and children had left for work earlier and his maid had to stay home to care for his 92-year-old father. It was only drizzling when he left the house, so he did not bring an umbrella. But it started to pour as he waited for a taxi. This small act of kindness touches the heart of many. It may seem small but it is really a lot to the person who received help, especially towards the elderlies who can get sick more easily.
