In a world of hatred and misery, we need heartwarming stories that show there is still good in the world!
A Chick-Fil-A manager in Maryland went above and beyond to assist a 96-year-old World War II veteran known as “Mr. Lee” with a flat tire.
What a wonderful act of selflessness.
Chick-Fil-A manager Daryl Howard was working the front line of the restaurant on Thursday in Severn, Maryland. The veteran, known to employees as 96-year-old “Mr. Lee,” entered the store “shaking” and “almost in tears,” according to fellow manager Rudy Somoza.
Standing in line, Mr. Lee told employees he was driving on three tires and barely made it to the entrance of the restaurant due to a flat tire and didn’t have any help to change it.
“As soon as he finished his sentence, Daryl informed me he needed to help this gentleman right now,” Somoza said of his coworker, “Daryl jumped on into action without hesitation.”
“His action of kindness was beautiful. Daryl has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition.” He continued, I thank God I was in the right position to be witness of this touching moment,”
He was able to fix Mr. Lee’s tire in about 15 minutes, said Somoza — who took pictures showing the simple act of kindness. He added that Howard didn’t know he was being photographed.
Hope in humanity has been restored.
