With the new era, a lot of things have changed. People have changed, and everything around us has changed.
Back in the days, things used to be good, and also people used to be good. But as we evolved, the society is often in a state of true chaos.
But, what defines us are those little moments that truly prove, that things ain’t how they seem. There are some people, who stand out naturally.
There are real and kind people, like a Georgia woman, named Lisa Lemming Jackson.
The woman was a working-class lady, where she worked at a Senior Care Facility.
She was doing what every other person does, that’s going to the grocery and shop. She was shopping at a Krogers, when her womanly instincts sensed that something was strange, with an old man.
I love how women are. They can tell when a situation is good, or when it’s not good.
She noticed that the old man needed some assistance, even though he did not ask for some help. The question is, why did he not ask anyone for some help?
Jackson decided to follow her heart, so she had to approach him, and asked him how she could help out.
The old man, who goes by the name Elmer, broke into tears as he replied to Lisa. The back story of his life was sorrowful as he had colon cancer. Then, he had a really bad accident too at Kroger. This is known as ‘double trouble’.
He had to sit on the cart since if people saw his condition, they would maybe react in different ways. In these ways, we know that people might make fun of him, and that will make him feel embarrassed.
He even had to ask himself, and Jackson on what to do. Can you imagine, you’re out in public, then something that you wouldn’t wish for, just happens?
Always be thankful, if you’re OK.
In a split second, Jackson decided to help him solve the issue. She quickly brought her “team”, that is the Kroger employees, whereby their services were to provide everything they required. They brought wipes, and fresh clothes.
They finally succeeded in their small mission. The man changed, but he wasn’t happy so much, as he had one other errand to ran. That errand was to get back to his wife, but the accident that happened, made him sob throughout the ordeal.
The saying that goes by, “from grass to grace,” is actually a meaningful saying. After he was cleaned up, he found another surprise. Would you guess what was the surprise?
The things he had shopped, were paid for, bagged, and the only thing that was remaining was him checking out. This was like a miracle.
So, they had to have a talk, and Elmer explained a part of his life story. He said that he was among those who fought in Vietnam and[the] Korean War. He is the kind of person who loves his country dearly.
One thing that makes him feel down, is the fact that up until today, he feels like the country had forgotten about him. Isn’t bad to forget such people, who especially did fight in the war?
After sharing that story, they felt touched and had to break into tears. Jackson too had to share her struggles and fears. Luckily, Elmer had to give her some words of wisdom and encouraged her.
Helping out someone is like saving one’s life. I’d say that those who have some complications with their bodies, or certain diseases, should always stay strong. They don’t know what the future has in store for them.
Yes, we might be having the worst of things in this world, but not everything is as cruel and horrible, as there are amazing things happening between the real people every day.
