Dr. Sarosh Ashraf Janjua was pulled over in Minnesota this past weekend for driving above the speed limit. When Trooper Brian Schwartz saw her Massachusetts driver's license, he asked her what she was doing all the way out in Minnesota.
"I told him I travel here every month for my work as a locums cardiologist.” He went back to his patrol car and Janjua was fully expecting a ticket.
“He went back to his car to look up my license, and when he returned, told me he was going to let me off with a warning. As I sputtered to apologize and say thank you, he reached in to hand me what I assumed was my license back. It wasn’t until my hand had closed around what he was giving me that its unexpected bulkiness drew my eyes to it."
The trooper her five N95 masks, from the supply the state had given him for his protection.
"I burst into tears. This complete stranger, who owed me nothing and is more on the front lines than I am, shared his precious masks with me.”
