COURAGE AT THE AGE OF 63

On my way to Fair Ground i found this old lady serving water to the people who are going by the roads,they went to her and exchanged some amount and she served water to those persons from that pot. I am very much overwhelmed when I saw an old lady serving life to many people where water is such a crisis in summer days, this pleased me so well so even I went to her and had some water from her and then I came to know she was 63 year old and she has nobody in her life and this is the way from where she can earn some money for herself and give some relief to the thirsty people of her locality. Such humble and down to earth behavior is unnoticeable these days.
