Random Act of Kindness -- 2

Excerpted from Random Acts of Kindness -- An Illustrated Celebration

"Two years ago, a sixty-eight-year-old woman was the victim of a burglary.  She lived simply on a fixed income, and the only item of value -- her television set -- was stolen.  After saving for nearly a year, she bought a new one.  Then, returning home one afternoon after visiting her sister, she found a police officer waiting for her.  Her home had been burglarized again, and her new TV set, that had taken her almost a year to save up for, was gone.  This left her scared and shaken.

This time, though, the story turned out differently.  The police officer negotiated a deal with a local electronics store that resulted in a brand-new television arriving in time for her 69th birthday.
