Fiction Story: What would you do? Sam had to ask himself that same question several times, only in his case the answer reached was not theoretical. No matter how he would phrase things or try to rationalize the situation, the answer he reached was always the same. He had to 'Do the right thing'. It was not that he could be snowed by a 'sad' tale or blinded by a pretty face, but he was at a point in his life that the phrase, 'Pay it forward' meant something to him.
