Every life has its share of crises—of course, we hope few in number with lots and lots of time in between. No one wants it, but some relationships crash to a halt. Jobs we cherish evaporate. Physicians share dire diagnoses and prognoses we don't want to hear. When these moments come our way, don't all of us hope that we don't have to suffer the trials and tribulations alone, that people – even total strangers – take the time to care about us, take the time to lend a hand? Tim Lemire, certainly thinks so.
