We spotted bare feet and grabbed a pair of flip-flops and crossed the road. A young barefooted woman was surrounded by several people who scarpered as soon as we came close. ‘Who were they?’ we asked. ‘I don’t know’ she replied. ‘Where are your friends?’ ‘In the club but they won’t let me in.’ As soon as we bent down to put the flip-flops on her feet she began to cry and was so grateful for our help: ‘It was horrible – they wouldn’t stop touching me’. She was very drunk and was upset because she hadn’t been allowed back into the club where her friends were. We walked alongside while she staggered and we waited with her until her friends finally came out. People cry when they feel scared or safe enough to let it out. Kindness often overwhelms and wins people.
