    Dedication : The Good Samaritan that helped 12 people after Christmas in the Park
    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas in the Park on the day after Christmas. After marveling at the holiday displays, riding rides and having our traditional cup of hot peppermint cocoa, we ventured home walking back to our car at the garage where KQED is based. 3 out of 4 elevators were out and we took the last ride down. As we were to exit, the door of the elevator refused to open! A good Samaritan helped us by mustering all his strength to relentless keep prying the doors open, and after multiple attempts, was successful in prying it open about 15 inches so all 12 of the us slip out. What a lifesaver! I could tell he was exhausted as he put all his effort in to help us. When I thanked him, he said he wanted to be there for us and didn't want us to be left without help. I didn't have a chance to catch him name, he was super nice and was there with two members of his family. Many thanks and blessings!
