A family of five came in husband wife and three children. They made their order and when it was time to pay the gentleman card declined due to an error. He didn't have any other form of payment and his wife was a diabetic and so was the youngest child which was 4 years old, and I took the liberty to pay for their whole meal without expecting anything in return. Later on that night before we closed the gentleman came and repaid me with interest and told me thank you and that is when I found out that his wife and youngest child were diabetics.
Thank God for Phillip Banks. . College football player, marine, hero instincts in right time right place .

One time at work this woman came rushing in and was frantically looking for diapers for her baby. I helped show her where the aisle was. She explained that her 11-year-old son had grabbed the wrong bag for her on their way out. She was rushing and the baby was screaming so she hadn't been paying attention. Their bag had no baby supplies and they were far away from home when the baby needed a change. I tried to make her laugh and cheer her up as the baby was getting fussy. I told her this can happen to any mom. As she goes to pay she realizes her wallet is also in the other bag as well and she starts to get upset. I took the diapers from her and went to my co-worker's register and had her ring me out along with some wipes and some candy for her son. She hugged me with tears in her eyes. I never felt so good before. The next week wouldn't you know it she came back to the store and told us she wouldn't shop anywhere else but Walgreens. She handed me a check for $100 to thank me for "saving the day." I was shocked! I told her I was just doin what anyone else would. She said no one else would have helped them the way I had.
I can't even imagine driving towards a shooting when you first heard the sounds and screams. I have the deepest admiration for this woman. I hope this inspires others here in our group and out in the world. I have watched this a few times and it ALWAYS gets me. Paloma, you are a true hero. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=161&v=yh1NAMi2oLg
