Community View | An act of ‘personal goodness’ restores hope
I am an old man in my 70s. I have lived in Kingman most of my life, and had occasion to do some grocery shopping this morning.
After I finished up at the grocer’s I decided to go to the McDonald’s restaurant on Stockton Hill Road to pick up some breakfast for my wife and myself. I got into the drive-thru line, placed my order and proceeded to go through the pick-up line. I noticed that a vehicle beside me had been in line before I had placed my order, so I motioned to the lady in that vehicle that she had been here first and she should go ahead of me. She waved to me and did.
I proceeded to the checkout window and presented my credit card. The window employee informed me that the woman in the car ahead of me had already paid for my food.
I waved to her but I didn’t get a chance to properly thank her for her kindness. I would like to do so at this time. Thank you!
Acts of personal goodness are starting to become obsolete in our so-called “United” States. We are so busy trying to badmouth the “other” guy that we are not acting like Americans. We are losing our common brotherhood/sisterhood. Hopefully we can salvage our republic before it is too late.
