    I love this. Brings up something that I really think this country needs to focus more on.

    Let's take care of our elderly, homeless, and veterans.

    So tired of hearing about immigrants. Establish a final frikkin method of allowing people in and be done with it, but focus on actually taking care of our people.

    Mental health, elderly and vets living in poverty. These people paid into our system for years and/or put their lives on the line. How can we be worried about others before them?

    I absolutely could not agree more. We need to take care of our own first. I'm not going to get up on my soap box because it might incite an argument, and that's not what this thread is for. Just glad to see some giving back to our vets. They absolutely have earned it.

    Mom's A Mess Trying To Calm Her Baby. Then The Walmart Cashier Inserts Her Personal Credit Card

    "Today me and my Husband Michael Jordan went to the Walmart on Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, SC. It was another dreaded shopping trip trying to buy groceries for a family of 5. We got as much stuff as we could get on my husband's income since I'm a Stay at Home Mom. We literally dread going to Walmart and buying groceries period because my husband's whole check goes to food for our family.

    I will say that I'm not a fan of shopping at Walmart because of how rude some of the people can be. But after tonight my whole perspective has changed.

    As me and my husband were in line putting our groceries on the thing for the cashier to scan we had our youngest daughter with us, who was very fussy and tired and just wanted to go to sleep. Half of the time the cashier's don't engage in conversation but the cashier we had tonight was very friendly.

    I can't remember exactly what she said but it was along the lines of you must have a big family y'all have a lot of stuff. I said yeah we do. She told me my total and I was digging through my wallet trying to count all of my money out. She gave me a smile and said you guys look like you need a blessing tonight. I just smiled back. Then the cashier walked around the counter and was hitting something on the keypad. (I thought she was giving us a coupon) then she walked back to her register. I then looked at the total and I was at a loss for words.

    This sweet woman whom I never met in my life paid for half of my groceries!

    I was in complete shock because I never expected anything like that to ever happen. Me and my husband were just staring at each other like is she serious? Did she really just do this? I was really at a loss for words. I didn't know what to say.

    How could this woman who didn't even know me, know our situation, know us, why would she do this? I asked her what her name was and she told me, I thanked her and asked her if I could take a picture with her and post it to social media and she said yes.

    Me and my husband and our very fussy one year old finally got into the car and when we did we just looked at each other and smiled and at that moment we both knew things were going to be OK because there truly are good people out there.

    Thank you so much Sharnique Dasant you truly are a blessing and you will never realize how much you helped us out and how much faith you have put back into our hearts."

    In an interview with the local news station, the cashier, Sharnique Dasant, said the couple looked like they needed a blessing and God told her to help them.

    "She started putting her stuff up, her baby was crying, she had her husband with her," Dasant remembered.

    "As we're scanning and scanning, she got in front of me and it's like I saw a different face on her," Dasant said. "And I just had like a little man on my shoulder that was like, 'Give her a $100 dollars, give her $100 dollars.' And I was like, 'give her $100 dollars?' Like, I'm talking to myself like, 'Give her 100 dollars!'"

    "So I was like, I said, 'Yeah, God told me to give you $100 dollars,'" Dasant said, "and she said 'What? What? What are you talking about?' So I said, 'He told me to give you $100 dollars.' So I went ahead and I slid my card. I went around the register and I slid it for her."

    Not to go all Hos and divert attention to myself but it is a great feeling when you provide random acts of kindness to complete strangers.

    I've done it every few months or so for the last year and a half. Nothing to the degree of the lady from Walmart but quietly paying for a meal/drink here and there. The reason I started doing it wasn't due to the whole "pay it forward" thing. I started doing it because of the kindness others have shown me while I'm out and about in uniform.

    I can't count the number of times that complete strangers have randomly volunteered to purchase my meal or restaurant managers have comped my order.

    So one day I thought to myself, instead of always being a beneficiary, the right thing to do would be for me to pass on a few simple acts of generosity of my own.

    So if you're ever down in Miami and the employee in the drive-thru window informs you that your 6 piece McNuggets have already been paid for, it might just be me. ~pats self on back for showing how good of a guy I am~
