Chivalry lives

To the Editor:

On Dec. 29, my daughter and I went to see a movie in Crystal Lake.

Upon arriving and exiting the car, I noticed that the road looked very icy.

Concerned I would fall walking to the theater entrance, my daughter took one arm and all of a sudden this man asked if he could help me also.

I first said, “No, I am OK,” and started to slip again. He proceeded to insist he help.

So he grabbed my other arm, and here we were walking, and the man almost fell himself. We get to the door, and he even opens the door for us and said, “Enjoy your movie.”

I just want to say, “Thank you”, to this gentleman. I never got his name, but just wanted to thank him. There are still men out there who still practice chivalry. Kudos to you, sir.
