He wore his hair shoulder length and very curly. He wore a pair of heavy black jeans with black steel-toed work boots on his feet. "I walked past here every day, and finally, I couldn't take it. I had to do something. I offered prayers and asked permission, then I walked on the grass, climbed up there, and removed the scarf around his ankle."

"I am," he bowed his head, very concerned.

"Did you fall and break your neck, by the way?" I asked.

"No," he said.

"Then, you're fine," I assured him. "You did the right thing."
