Lou Ludwig Success Tips: NBA Star Alonzo Mourning Caught Directing Traffic!

NBA Star Alonzo Mourning Caught Directing Traffic!

Over the weekend basketball great Alonzo Mourning did something that he didn't have to do. As he was drive in Miami, he noticed a person trying to cross a very busy street in a wheel chair.

What he did next shows why he was a great basketball player and team leader. He stopped his car andĀ helped the person cross the road.

He didn't have to do it, he wasn't asked to do it, but as a person who's a great leader he get out of his car and helped the person cross a very busy street.

Alonzo is a leader and a role model in life.

Good luck and success.

direct trafficNBA Star and Champion Alonzo Mourning was caught directing traffic in Miami on Friday.  No, the economy may be tight but the former Miami Heat Center does not have a new career!  He was doing something that I wonder if any of us would do.... performing a random act of kindness.

This past Friday, Mourning was stopped on a busy street at the traffic light when he noticed a disabled man in a motorized wheelchair waiting to cross the street.  Mourning got out of his car and with long arms outstretched, he stopped traffic so that the man could cross.  After he made it to the median, Mourning then stopped traffic on the south bound side so that the gentleman could continue.  Mourning then got back in his car and drove off.

Nice, I thought.... too bad more people don't do this.

I was relating this story to my husband on the way to our morning walk, when I looked up and just ahead at the corner a young mancar stalled had gotten off his motorcycle and was walking up to a car.  Then I noticed that the car at the light was stalled and this young man on the motorcycle had stopped to take the time to perform a random act of kindness... he was helping to push the car through the light and off to safety.  Two others stopped as well to help this stranded motorist.  

Now I'm sure there are a cynic or three out there who would say Mourning did it for publicity or someone might say stopping traffic was more dangerous for everyone.  But I like to see the glass half full and think ... no... someone just did something nice for his fellow man.

What does it say about our society when a simple random act of kindness elicits such amazement;  when it should be the other way around... being appalled when someone fails to respond in this manner.

What would you have done?  Would you have stopped to render aid?  Or would you have driven by, shaking your head saying "gee, that's too bad for that man."

Lou - I LOVE hearing stories like this, it just goes to show there are still people who are willing to help others with nothing in return.

Lou, what a wonderful story. Only thing better than hearing about this is actually being able to do something like this!

There are still good people out there in the world. Some of them are right inside of ALL of us. I think i would have stopped. Countless people get stuck in the Michiga winter and i see our neighborhood rally together to help others. There is still some good left in this world.
