One of the challenging parts of being a political writer is that I don’t just hear about all the awful crap going on in the world – I go looking for it. It’s literally my job.
Sometimes it’s hard to remember that there are truly wonderful people out there.
Which is why I like to highlight stories like these. I know I need a faith-restorer from time to time, so I’m assuming you all do, too.
A Florida man went to Costco to buy a generator for the hurricane… and found another guy doing the same. TIMES A HUNDRED.
According to News4Jax.com:
Alec Sprague, a Jacksonville resident, told News4Jax he went to Costco off Collins Road to buy a generator, and he saw a man purchasing over 100 of them.
The man, who is not being named, was purchasing the generators and food to send to the Bahamas.
Sprague said the generators cost around $450 apiece. He made a post on Facebook.
“Was just in Cosco off Collins getting a generator (at $450 each) and this guy right here is purchasing over 100 generators and food to send to the Bahamas!” the post said. “All I could do was shake his hand and thank him! There still are good people in the world!”
The post was shared 17,000 times in three hours.
News4Jax learned that this was possible through the “Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund.”
There is good in the world, folks.
We just have to keep our eyes open for it.
