Eleanor Baker is an 80 year old widow and she has a huge family. However all her family members stay at far off places. On her 60th wedding anniversary Eleanor was dinning alone in the restaurant, she was unaware that someone was observing her. Eleanor was lost in the sweet memories of her husband. Eleanor often used to dine by herself.
When Eleanor entered the restaurant, she did not know that today she was not going to dine alone. She was about have a company of some new friends.
While Eleanor was sitting, three men entered the restaurant. One of the men came to her and asked her if they could join her. Baker said “He just came up and he said ‘I saw you sitting over here alone’ and he said ‘do you mind having some company?’” When Jamario Howard saw Eleanor sitting alone, he thought he has to do something to make the evening better for her. When asked her if he and his friends could join her, Eleanor said yes.
After chatting for some time, they all had the dinner together. Jamario says he hates seeing people eat alone. Eleanor says “It was a God thing. I think God sent me there [as an example that] people care about other people and how important it is.” Eleanor told her three new friends how she lost her husband. After the dinner Jamario posted the pictures of their dinner with Eleanor. For Jamario it was a life changing experience for him. One of three men said “When you make that kind of connection with somebody, it’s had to let it go.”
Jamario says being kind, nice and generous to others can bring in a change in the world. He said “I’m not rich. I’m not famous. And I am not very smart either, so I can’t be president. But we can show the world it’s alright to be kind and then, before long, maybe the world will be a much better place. Jamario says to people to visit their parents and grandparents from time to time.
Jamario urges to not to judge anyone. Jamario says, “Everyone has a story.”
Michael – That young man who said “i’m not rich i’m not famous and i’m not very smart either”, you need to know you’re exactly the type of person we need more of. Thank you for being you.
Julio – If that kid isn’t really “that smart”, as he describes himself, then this world needs more like him and his friends. It’s amazing the amount of ppl out there with all sorts of college degrees who can’t even say good morning to another fellow human being when they’re out on the street.
Maria – That story warms my heart a lot, there are seniors that need company at times, but to see that she shared her table with the young men it sends a message to those people that the world can get along regardless of their ages and the skin color.
THANK U GOD KEEP THEM IN YOUR HEART AS U DO US ALL
Earl – The young man said he wasn’t smart, I’ll take compassion over smart any day. These young men are going places, great story.
Grace – Three young men that were raised right. Caring, loving, well mannered, well spoken, nicely dressed. Props to their parents!
