A Noble Reaction
For years a resident of Jerusalem was concerned about finding a husband for his second daughter. The young lady had many virtues but suffered from a physical disability which necessitated wearing a brace on one of her legs.
Although it was not discernible in her walking there was still the lingering fear that once a suitor discovered this handicap he might back out of a shiduch.
A wonderful young man met the girl and when things looked serious she let him know about her problem.
The surprising response was "I am so sorry I took you for such a long walk which must have been an effort for you."
This noble attitude vindicated all the fine things the girl's family had heard about the boy and an engagement was soon announced.
