On December 14th Jordan (the country) was hit by the worst snow storm in the last 40 years. It just so happened that a friend of mine was driving in the middle of it. Suleiman went from zero to hero in no time with his trusty truck, named Lola. Here are some pictures and his personal account, reposted with permission.
Biggest snow storm in 40 years.
4 hour roaming patrol. Towed 3 cars, rescued 18 stranded people & drove them home. One of them a man who got stuck buying his family bread. When I found him it was so cold the bread was almost frozen. He told me he will name his first son Suleiman. Today is a good day.
Rescued an EMT ambulance unit that was stuck for more than 4 hours in the snow. They have been working non stop for 3 days. Real Heroes. They told me they heard about a man in a black truck helping people. They hoped I would pass them by. And I did! Karma! I Towed them back to their HQ. They treated me for frostbites in my left foot that I didn’t realize I had.
He didn’t go home, he stayed on the road, and helped as many people as he could.
Love is heroic.
My friend is real. You can follow Suleiman on twitter!!
Here’s wishing you and yours a new year filled with all kinds of love.
