Powerful.

The Bible tells us that the world will know we are Christians by our love for one another, and there are few ways better to love a brother or sister than to lift them up in prayer.

While Chick-fil-A may be best known for their incredible acts of kindness for their customers and communities, one of their own employees was the on the receiving end of one of the restaurant’s latest heartwarming deeds.

At the Belmont, North Carolina location of America’s favorite chicken joint, a woman known as Ms. Trish isn’t just an employee, she’s a beloved member of the community.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ms. Trish might have felt scared or uncertain, but her Chick-fil-A family saw to it that she never felt alone or uncared for during the ordeal.

When the day finally came for Ms. Trish to go in for surgery, the restaurant crew took a moment during the busiest part of their day to do something amazing for her.

In a now-viral Facebook post, fellow Chick-fil-A Belmont employee Susan Lackey Norris said “there have been numerous times that [Ms. Trish] has stopped what she was doing and prayed with our customers.”

So, at 11:52 AM, when Ms. Trish was scheduled to be in surgery, everyone in the restaurant, including the customers, stopped what they were doing to pray for her.

“We have one of our team members that is starting surgery right now for breast cancer, and we’d like to say a short prayer for her,” he said to those present in the packed eatery.

“Dear Lord, please just protect Ms. Trish as she begins her surgery today. Please give the surgeons a steady hand as they perform the needed surgery on her,” the manager, who has not been identified, continued. “Please keep everybody in the surgery room, let them be at their best today and have sharp minds and clear heads as they work on her. We need her back here.”

“She is our light. She is the pillar in the community for us and everybody here loves her so much and please, please protect her and get her back here to brighten our days, all of our days, as soon as you can,” he concluded, sending up the prayer in Jesus’ name.

The total silence in the dining area was finally broken when everyone sealed their prayer with a heartfelt “amen.”

Going through any trial, let alone one as severe as a battle with cancer, can be life-shaking, but there is tremendous peace and comfort in knowing that God has us in the palm of His hand and that the prayer warriors in our lives are lifting us up before Him.

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

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”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
