One good turn deserves another English Conversation Lesson

We all want to do acts of kindness, but how many of us really act on it in a positive way?  I have many people come to my door asking for charity.  Sometimes I give with a smile, but sometimes I have to admit I don't.  This story warmed my heart as I hope that it will warm yours.
