The Good Samaritan

Today when Ethan got home from school he asked if he was late. I told him no he was right on time. He was worried that I would be worried because on his way home from school there was a girl who had forgotten she was riding her scooter home and wore flip flops to school. So she had ended up hurting her foot really bad. In his words she had a big flap of skin! So he rode back to the school (he was on his skate board) and asked for a band aid and a cup of water so he could clean her cut. Oh and one of the older girls in our ward got there too and stayed with her while Ethan went back to the school. So Ethan got back to her and helped take care of her so she could get home! He told me he felt sad because there were some other kids that passed her and they just laughed at her. I was so proud of him for making a good choice to help and that he had the courage to go all the way back to the school (he was about half way home). I told him it was just like the Good Samaritan.
