A mall is a typically crowded place — uncomfortable, and people are trying to get in and out as soon as possible. Sometimes, magical moments happen in the most unsuspected of places — you just have to pay attention.
Paula Accorsi Picard was spending a normal day shopping at the mall when she spotted something unusual. A black man went over and grabbed an older white man’s arm and uttered six words that left everyone in tears. He asked, “Can I help you on, sir?” There was silence, tears, and for a moment, everyone felt a sense of “togetherness” that many are missing from their day to day lives.
The viral Facebook post by Paula tells the story of that day. The older man was standing at the top of the escalator, looking intimidated. It turns out that he was once trapped on an escalator and scared that it might happen again.
Alonzo Johnson, the gentleman who offered to help the older man noticed his discomfort. He walked up, ahead of the line of people waiting to get on the escalator and helped the man get down the escalator. It was one of the most heartwarming stories we have seen in a long time.
There is an underlying message to all of this — which Paula notes in her post. Tonight, when we all go home, we are going to see the bitterness that the media tries to project on to us. We see stories of racial tension, violence, death, homelessness, and horrors overseas.
We have to take a step back every once in a while and recognize good things when we see them. Sadly, something tells us the Liberal mainstream media outlets are not going to cover this story.
Once you understand WHY they won’t cover such a beautiful story, it becomes frustrating. The connection between these two individuals breaks their narrative of a violent world full of racial, toxic behavior.
The Left will avoid any story that stands a chance of making them look bad — even if it encourages the “peaceful” values they insist they champion. It is not about peace for the Leftist mainstream media. It is about promoting their agenda through any means possible.
We can all learn a valuable lesson from this story. When you are out in public, take some time to LOOK at the people around you. We are all individuals with hopes, hearts, souls, and fears. Sometimes a simple gesture can do wonders for a troubled soul who just needs a little help.
If you are ever in a situation where you can help someone less fortunate than you PLEASE take the opportunity. Show them that the world is not as cold as people might like them to believe. We all need to stand together and show the Left that they are not in it for peace; they are in it for themselves. SOME of us want to make the world a better place — and we will gladly do our part each and every day.
