Kindness can come in many forms. It can be as simple as someone giving you a smile as you walk past, or an offer to hold open the door. It doesn’t take much to show that you care, and people really do appreciate random acts of kindness. When you hear about it on a larger scale though, it can really touch your heart. This story out of Utah is one that definitely affected someone in a great way. The tale of the man behind the act though is quite tragic, and will make you thankful for everything you have in your life. Check out this amazing act of kindness and the tragic story of the man behind it. You seriously are going to want some tissues handy, I’m getting choked up just writing about it.
What this man did for complete strangers absolutely blew me away. This guy is a real life hero.
If this doesn’t choke you up, I don’t know what will. The fact that someone who lost all their family still values it so much…. That is truly powerful.
I think we can all agree with Ron Swanson’s reaction here.
NBC news was able to track down the good Samaritan and get a little back story on him. He grew up with a single mother, who worked hard every single day to give him and his siblings a good life. She had raised them to be kind and caring people. Unfortunately a few years down the road, the kind man found himself in trouble and facing prison. His actions caused him to lose his whole family. He has since turned his life around and runs a successful business. He has done things like this before, this is the first time it was gotten attention though. He uses this as his way to “pay it back”. Family really is everything. Go home and hug yours tonight, and don’t ever take them for granted.
