With all of the vile rhetoric and constant bickering between folks in America today who are more divided than ever along political lines, it can be easy to forget there’s still a lot of good happening in the world.

Therefore, it’s nice to have a change of pace now and again, taking time to smell the roses as it were, examining the wonderful things people still do for each other, despite the polarization reported on by the media.

There’s a picture going viral that proves love for one’s neighbor and acts of kindness are still a thing that exists in 21st century America.

‘It was unbearably hot,’ Louis Jordan remembered as he arrived at his mother job’s in Houston to give her a lift back home.

That’s when Jordan saw an elderly woman waiting at a bus stop in the brutal heat, telling ABC affiliate KTRK 7 that his first thought was: ‘I wouldn’t want to be out there in the sun.’

Swiftly realizing that an umbrella had been stowed away in the trunk of the car, he grabbed the device and brought it over to help shield the woman from under the sun.

‘Come to find out, it was going to be a little longer for METRO Lift to come and get her,’ he said. ‘So we ended up waiting out there for an hour and 45 minutes.

As if this story isn’t enough to tell you about the stellar content of this young man’s character, his mother said it’s not the first time he’s performed an act of kindness. During Hurricane Harvey, he risked his life to rescue his grandmother.

Now, some folks might be wondering why an act of kindness is news, after all, how many thousands and thousands of these kinds of things happen every day and don’t land on news? What makes this one special?

Well, for starters, this was caught on camera. Secondly, it’s not that this act is somehow better than all the other acts of love and goodness happening in the world, it’s just that this is a good reminder that the other ones are happening, even if we don’t see them.

It’s protection against cynicism, despair, and discouragement.

Here’s to hoping more and more people follow in Jordan’s footsteps.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
