Most of us were taught to be wary of strangers when we were growing up and with good reason. However, there are many instances where strangers have been incredibly kind and supportive. People on Twitter shared their happy interactions with strangers after author Mitali Perkins shared an instance with a random teenager. "I was walking alone yesterday when an unsmiling teen on a bike whizzed by," wrote Perkins. "Our eyes met. He circled back, and I couldn't help bracing myself for our encounter. 'Hey, lady,' he said gruffly. 'Five ducklings. Under the culvert ahead.' Then he did a wheelie and sped off." Perkins wasn't prepared for that but it lifted her spirits. The tweet garnered more than 138,000 likes. Here are some of the replies that will warm your hearts.
