Strangers surprise man who walks 3 miles to work with new carMoreWhen Andy Mitchell spotted a young man in a fast food uniform walking along the side of a road on a 95-degree summer day in Rockwall, Texas, he felt compelled to pull over. He rolled down his window and offered the man, a 20-year-old named Justin Korva, a ride — not knowing how much that small gesture would impact the man’s life. While driving the Korva to work at Taco Casa, Mitchell discovered the young man normally walked 3 miles to work and home again every day. Korva said he was determined to save up money and someday, he hoped, he would be able to afford a car. After dropping off Korva, Mitchell posted about the man’s determination on Facebook. “To all the people that say they want to work … … …”

Anyone, who says the flyover USA is racist, miserly, and “mean”, should follow this story.

Despite all the taxes, fees, inflation, and Gooferment theft, real every day folks are generous. At home or abroad, “we” don’t sit on our wallets.

And, “we” could be even MORE charitable if the Gooferment didn’t steal our wealth in their version of “charity” — with the cost of all those politicians and bureaucrats to “administer” it. I like to point to the Salvation Army as the classic example of a charity. The top kick makes under 100k. Compare that to the United Way, the Red Cross, or any Big Charity! 

In this example, the community and businesses all chipped in. No big salary. No administrators. No marketing. Just action. A C T I O N.

People to person.

Love it.
