What This Pizzeria Employee Did for Terminally Ill Man 500 Miles Away is Beyond Epic

We need more stories like these.

With all of the insanity floating around out in the world today and our nation more divided than ever along political lines, it’s refreshing sometimes to just sit back and read a feel good story.

Something to remind you that, while things are certainly dark at the moment, there’s still a lot of good being done in the world by folks who still remember what it’s like to be human. One such individual is an employee from Steve’s Pizza, a restaurant in Michigan, who did something wonderful for a terminally ill man.

Julie and Rich Morgan used to live in Battle Creek, Michigan 25 years ago and one of Rich’s favorite places to eat was Steve’s Pizza. Rich would always bring home a pie from the restaurant each payday, even when money was tight.

The couple eventually moved to Indianapolis, but the delicious pizza from Steve’s, and the memories they made eating them, have stuck with them ever since.

The Morgans had planned to visit the restaurant again, but a trip to the emergency room changed all of that. Rich is now at home receiving hospice care, his battle with cancer coming quickly to an end.

But here’s the beautiful part of the story.

Knowing how much that pizzeria meant to the couple, Julie’s dad called Steve’s Pizza to see if someone could send a card or text to cheer them up. But Dalton Shaffer, a manager, had a different idea.

“Well, what kind of pizza do they like?” Shaffer asked Julie Morgan’s father, according to MLive.com.

Her father quickly sought to clarify that he was calling from Indianapolis – nearly 200 miles away and in a different state. Shaffer, 18, said he understood and promised to make the special delivery of two 16-inch pepperoni and mushroom pizzas as soon as he closed the restaurant just after 10 p.m.

“And so, while Rich and I slept, at 2:30 a.m., Dalton rolled into our driveway, left the car running and delivered two extra special pizzas to my waiting family,” Julie said. “He told them we were in his prayers, and offered to help in any way he could.”

Julie said Shaffer also refused an offer from the family to put him up in a hotel. He also immediately left, she said, so he could make it home in time for work in the morning.

Shaffer is the nephew of Steve’s Pizza’s owner and has been working at the restaurant for about two years, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer.

“I just wanted to do that for them,” he told the newspaper. “I just wanted to make them happy.”

He added that he didn’t plan on telling anyone about his out-of-state trek – including his uncle.

“I just hope people could keep that family in mind and pray for them,” Shaffer said.

“I am beyond overwhelmed by this act of genuine kindness,” Julie Morgan said. “Dalton brought our family so much joy – and the best pizza in the world – at a really difficult time. While ‘thank you’ hardly seems adequate – from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!”

Shaffer ended up driving a total of 450 miles round-trip to make the delivery. Here’s the real kicker, though. Steve’s pizza doesn’t even offer delivery service.

Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Published

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness. One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.” Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation. “I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.” McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.” “[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need…

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

Published

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…
