A few days later, Powell returned to the spot with her own children.
“My youngest son said, ‘Look, there’s a squirrel.’ I turned my head and there were two squirrels at the edge of a branch staring directly at me,” Powell said. “I smiled back. I believe that was the same two squirrels.”
Powell’s kindness, it seems, hadn’t been forgotten. And the incident is still on her mind, too.
“It’s still kind of surreal and neat at the same time. I am glad that I had that experience,” she said. “It was an experience that will always be remembered.”
