COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A Columbus good Samaritan paid it forward, helping one military family at a local restaurant.
In a Facebook post, a mother and her son who is completing his basic training at Fort Benning, the family expressed their thanks for a special someone who paid for their meal at Samurai over the weekend.
The grateful mother wrote: "This weekend I went to visit my son at Fort Benning with my daughter and mother. He is at basic training and it was family weekend. He loves sushi, so we found a Japanese restaurant."
The mother continues to write: "We probably ordered $100 worth of food and when we went to pay, the waitress said that the people at the other table had picked up the bill and they said to thank your son for his service. They were gone before I found this out, but I happened to snap a picture of my son that had one of the people in the background. I don't know who she is, but I can tell you that it meant the world to us. We will find a way to pay it forward."
Despite what you may hear or read, there still are many good people in this world, it is just of matter of looking for the good people.
