My husband and I have always been friendly with the clerks at the local convenience store where we often get gasoline. I don't think people appreciate what a difficult job these folks have sometimes. They work for a little over minimum wage and I often wonder how they make ends meet. One of the clerks.Charlie, was missing her glasses one day. I commented on it and she said they'd been broken and that she couldn't afford a new pair. It was obvious that she was having a difficult time. We wondered how we could help, so we turned to our own eye doctor for assistance with a plan. We had his secretary contact her, asking her to come over for an eye exam free of charge. We told the doctor to let her order whatever glasses she wanted and that we would pay for them. Although Charlie asked what was going on,the doctor just told her that someone had anonymously (匿名地)donated the money for her new glasses. When we went in to pay the bill,the doctor told us that he was so touched by our idea that he waived the exam fee and only charged us for half of the price of the glasses. It was so wonderful to see Charlie in her new glasses and she enjoyed telling all the regular customers how it came about. I'm sure that upon hearing her story, ideas of kindness may have sprouted(突然出现)in the minds of many. She will never know who the gift was from and I hope the idea that good people really do get a break sometimes was planted for her. 1.What can we infer from Paragraph 1?
