There’s no limit to what humans can accomplish when they work together.
In 2017, the Houston Astros won their first World Series in franchise history. Fans were beside themselves with excitement as they gathered in the streets of Houston, Texas, to celebrate their team’s big win. As players rode in a parade down the city’s main streets, hundreds of thousands of dedicated baseball fans watched and cheered for their team.
Hundreds of those fans had climbed the stairs of a multi-story parking garage in downtown Houston in order to get a good view of the parade on the street below. At some point, though, a woman at the very top of the garage was leaning over so far that the hat she was wearing slipped from her head and plummeted several stories to the street below.
Somehow, and we’re not really clear on the details here, but somehow the people at the bottom of the parking garage heard the woman’s plea for help. Before long, complete strangers started tossing the hat up to the waiting hands of people on the floor above them, slowly working the hat back up to its rightful place atop the woman’s head.
In typical sporting fashion, the fans soon began to cheer for the action going on in the garage. People hooted and cheered when the hat successfully made it up a few stories, then groaned as the hat slipped from someone’s fingers and fell down once more. Undeterred, the next set of waiting hands were there to grab the cap and continue it on its upward trajectory.
Finally, the hat makes it all the way to the top of the garage, and the crowd goes wild! You can hear the cheers, laughter, and screams from all of the strangers who’d worked together in this spontaneous moment of camaraderie. Victory!
We love seeing people coming together to help others, even when it’s only something as mundane as returning a hat. Way to go, Astros fans!
