The following article, West Virginia Boy Buys Stuff To Make Lunches For Truck Drivers With His Own Money; Pass Them Out Himself, was first published on Flag And Cross.
While the coronavirus rages on in America, causing the death toll to rise over 1,000, there are also heroes who are proving that in times of crisis good people will, themselves, step up to the plate and help provide a little bit of light shining in the darkness.
A 13-year-old boy from West Virginia is just such a hero. This young man made the news by using his own allowance to buy stuff to make lunches for truck drivers and pass them out himself at a stop near Morgantown.
This is what makes America so awesome.
Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:
“I have the money to go out and try to appreciate these drivers,” Logan Miller said in a video posted last week on Facebook. “They’ve done so much work for us. I go by one motto: If there’s no truck drivers out here, American would stop running.”
Miller said his father is a truck driver and worries that he might contract the coronavirus as he transports goods across the country.
To show his gratitude for drivers such as his father, Miller said he decided to use his weekly allowance, usually about $50 a week, to go to the local Sam’s Club and purchase food to put in bag lunches and pass out to drivers.
“There’s an Uncrustable in there, chips, two Slim Jims, and crackers,” Miller said.
Last week, the American Trucking Association renewed a promise to keep food and other essentials stocked on shelves across the country during the coronavirus pandemic.
Not all heroes wear capes, folks. This kid is living proof of that.
Just imagine if more people in the world thought and acted like this young man. How much better would we all be? Let’s hope his example rubs off on others and more kindness explodes out into the world. God knows we need it right now.
