What it means to be a neighbor

I was recently reminded of something that happened 27 years ago that made a big impression on me as 13 year old boy. My father was a farmer, and late in the summer he fell and severely broke his leg and pelvis, putting him in the hospital and unable to bring in the crops in the fall. The neighboring farmers took time out of their busy harvesting to bring in our crops with their equipment. Here are the articles from the newspaper about that day.
