Some stories need to be repeated

Raider power (College Paper) - Texas Tech, Lubbock, TX


I was at the men's polo department (Dillard's) yesterday in Lubbock and saw a great selfless act.

A man and his wife were checking out, and when he turned around to leave, he noticed a young serviceman behind him ready to check out. The couple went out of their way to welcome him back. He told him that he was only there for a couple of days. Turns out, his grandfather had just passed away and he was home forthe funeral. He confessed that he had no clothes and that was why he was at the mall.

The man took the clothes from his hands and proceeded to pay for them when the soldier pleaded that he 'didn't have to do that.' The man turned around and said 'Just like you didn't have to defend my freedom. This is my pleasure, son.' The soldier was really grateful, and the sales associate was in tears.

I just thought this story needed to be shared. There really are trulygood people in this world, and in Lubbock , Texas . To both of these men.......... my hat off!
