What Firefighters Did for Elderly Member of “Greatest Generation” Will Make Your Day

Published

It can be so easy for us to take for granted how difficult it can be for elderly people to live alone.

Many elderly people today, of course, are members of the so-called “Greatest Generation,” people who have lived through some of the most momentous events in our nation’s history, from WWII to the Civil Rights movement to the moon landing, and are known for their quiet resolve, old-fashioned American work ethic, and die-hard patriotism.

They know the true cost of freedom much more than we do, and it’s important that we honor these elderly citizens rather than sweep them under the rug.

Fox News reports that the firefighters, who shared their story on Facebook, when they responded to the woman’s LifeAlert alarm, which turned out to have been set off by accident.

That’s when they noticed she was still in need of some help, and they rose to the occasion without thinking twice.

“You see, this member of ‘The Greatest Generation’ lives alone and receives meals from the Meals on Wheels program, many of them frozen. That problem we noticed? Her microwave doesn’t work.”

The Squat 29 crew quickly took action. The firefighters, usually trained to do CPR or issue first-response medical care, headed to Lowe’s instead, to buy the woman a microwave.

Not only that, but they proceeded to install it and then cook her dinner.

“In Small Town USA, neighbors help neighbors,” the fire department wrote.

Amen to that!

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
