Finally, we’ve got a good story. Before I get too deep into this, I have to confess that I’m not a huge fan of Chick-Fil-A. For one, living in the northeast, the only Chick-Fil-A’s are in malls, and I’ll be damned if I’m going into the mall just to get fast-food chicken, regardless of how good it is. And two, while I don’t object to the fact that they are closed on Sundays for religious reasons (live and let live), I do have a problem with some of the statements their CEO, Dan Cathy, has made regarding same-sex marriage (again – live and let live). So needless to say, I just don’t frequent Chick-Fil-A that often.
But if I’m ever in the area, I’m popping into the Chick-Fil-A in Lee Vista, FL to give some props to their employees, who threw that closed on Sunday policy out of the window over the weekend when they decided to step up to help in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando. Employees from the store near Orlando came in on Sunday, their day off, to provide food to people who were standing in long lines to give blood, as well as to law enforcement officers who were working at the scene.
Just another example of how in the face of hate and violence, there will always be love and kindness..
