    Yes…cough…it was heartwarming to see Charles get so choked up over this story.

    I choked me up too.

    Great story.
    Personally, I think it is another indicator of The Trump Effect.

    This is the second heart warming story about a young person I have heard today. So awesome and I will repeat the mantra from the 1st story I shared. “Be the Walter Carr and Cohen Naulty you want the World to be!” Such inspiration!

    We can thank his parent(s). Someone raised him correctly, obviously taught him a work ethic. Not many would attempt to walk that far for his first day of work. And, there are good employers out there too.

    This young man was interviewed early this morning on Fox and Friends. I barely noticed this until he said he counted back 7 hours to make sure he would be 15 minutes early.

    May God bless him and the owner of the moving company.

    Both are looking out for each other!

    I live near DC and have to watch the local news in order to find out what neighborhoods to avoid, sigh. I often despair at the state of human affairs within the District and adjacent Prince Georges County…not a day goes by that there isn’t some report of minority youth killing each other – in fact, this week four of Obama’s sons jumped out of a vehicle in SE DC and pumped some 60-70 shots at the locals, killing a 10 year old girl. After 20 years living here, I have lost the capacity to care…then I see a story like this one and my faith is renewed – this kid needs to meet our POTUS…NOW! Somebody at the WH, please make it happen tout de suite!

    Thank goodness there are no many good people in America and especially to pay attention to and honor someone like this young man. He sacrificed sleep, time and energy to get to work. He deserved the car and attention so others can learn where there is a will there is a way, and rewards!

      This is why capitalism is better than Socialism. The boss has money he can spend rewarding this young man. Here in Europe, he wouldn’t have the money, the car would be too expensive and they would think he was crazy.

      Back in the day, my company was young. They sent me off to evaluate students, and set up groups etc. And that was the last I heard. Then several years later I was given a student in the company and realised that it was a big, on-going contract for us, but not only had I never gotten a thank you I had never gotten any of the work….And my boss loved me and considered me to be one of his best employees. Lol

    I believe there are innumerable stories like this emanating every single day, every single hour (every minute) in these United States. However, (in general) our press is on a singular and unabated mission to foist cynicism and negativity upon our collective souls. It is crucially important to know that the spirit of optimism and self-sacrifice courses through the arteries of our collective. Yet, politicians must justify their purposefulness by ever sowing discord. To love is to live encompassed in joy; to disparage (see MSN) is to wallow in covetousness… we need to uplift and celebrate what we built in this nation. Every. Single, Day. Win over the deceived one at at time, continuously, and our future may yet be bright. Pray, extol, celebrate, unceasingly. I teach in the most liberal school in the county and I never tire of fighting to do so.

      As far as people helping others, Impossible, I agree that these things happen all the time in the US.

      The remarkable thing about this story tho is really Walter. I had a *fantastic* work ethic as a kid but….start walking at midnight to get to work by 8 AM? I gotta say NO to that. (!)

      That’s what’s special about this story….Walter.

        …’‘tis true sunnydaze; but I imagine that you underestimate all the amazing things you did to fulfill a purpose, or a promise…. the reason I am compelled to continually reference this site is because of people like you. The honesty is compelling… still, I agree, it’s a great story. The fact that this young man’s dedication was recognized and rewarded may well set him on the path of honorably for life! What an amazing inducement.

    Years ago, this was the common road to success.

    It is sad to say we have lost that to such a degree that we are surprised to see it suddenly “appear” in our midst. But it still lives in America. Kinda how we are and all. 😉

      Take it back to the late 60’s and 70’s, Mike. It goes that far back. Obama was the culmination, not the beginning. That whole story is a book in itself.

      There is no real racial warfare – there is only the imagination of the commie left, and the fools refusing to leave the commie dem plantation.

      Walter gets that. 😉

    What is Bill Browder so afraid of. Why can’t he answer a few questions? He and all his co-conspirators are screaming awfully loud about the possibility he might be questioned. How does that saying go again? “If he’s innocent, he needs to start acting like it”. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Sundance will you please bring light to the story in Chicago where two CVS employees were fired for calling the police on a woman who was upset they would not take a coupon . The coupon didn’t look legit apparently-wouldn’t scan. For some reason they couldn’t accept. After apparently explaining to the customer..she in her own words on the CVS review complained about the refusal of said coupon ,then she followed one guy to the back after he refused to be videoed,.where he shut the door and she continued to argue through the door and manager asked her to leave as he had called the police..At some point she videoed him calling them. He was trembling..which he has been mocked for.

    If you look beneath her comment under the review,she immediately post that he is a LOG HOUSE REPUBLICAN,,,he apparently is also an advocate for the LQBTQ community,which she didn’t post. I find extremely odd that someone,who had a complaint about a store would immediately think to post someone’s political affiliation. Some places are reporting he was also working on a petition that had something to do with advocating for AA’s ,however he forged some signatures to try and get this looked at( wrong but yea…anyhoo).

    I just read tonight,that a local channel reported he recently had severe brain seizures. Likely what was causing the tremors. I have read racist comment after racist comment from her followers on FB of people laughing etc. CVS fired both for discrimination…yet to have seen the whole story or evidence to prove anything but her narrative and a video of him calling police. If he did something wrong…then so be it..But at this point,it feels like some are having their lives destroyed by a mob who up to this point has only seen 1/4 of the story. Maybe I am missing something with this story..but it has been weighing very heavy on my heart tonight.

    Yes, folks upthread mentioned Walter’s family. Often it is that rooted structure, but I have known several like Walter who rose from ‘ruins’ to make their own way. Regardless, this story was delightful to hear in his own unassuming way.

    One of President Trump’s most enduring qualities is his expectation that each individual will maximize his/her opportunities, and his message is always “believe in yourself.” Walter certainly embodies that as well.

    So the Russians want to interview former ambassador McFaul, who was a rabid anti-Trumper and was harshly critical of Trump Jr. meeting with Vesilnitskaya. He was also part of a group that pushed for the Magnitsky Act. Vesilnitskaya was supposedly against the Magnitsky act. That being the case, what was she doing with McFaul at this hearing just hours after the Trump tower meeting? Photo is midway down in the article.

    This warms my heart. What I wish the news would highlight is the stellar treatment of all those police officers who fed him and gave him rides, notifying other officers he’d need help as he approached their areas. I used to get rides from the police when I worked early in the morning at a bakery. Only years later did I realize that like this young man they were making sure I wasn’t a criminal (in my case that I wasn’t a hooker) but that as soon as they realized I was a young person in danger on the streets they began to make sure I got to work safely any time they saw me. That’s the police in this great country. So this was a beautiful story on many levels.

    When I sent this story from earlier source to my email friends, I put the subject as:

    “Alabama white cops stop black youth walking on side of highway late at night — surprise ending”

    When I posted a link to this story here yesterday I warned folks to grab the tissues before reading.

    THIS is an example of MAGA!! Not just economics and military, etc.

    It’s such a great story! His work ethic will serve him well. I see great things ahead for this young man.

    As an aside, they were both on Fox & Friends yesterday as well. His boss, the owner of Belhops, is not a wealthy man. He gave him one of his personal cars. He had a used sedan and a minivan. He didn’t think the young man would want a mini van so he gave him the sportier car.

    This is the America that I love.

    Best story of the month, hands down.

    Quite a number of years ago my boss overheard me saying my car broke down on the way to work- wasn’t worth repairing. I was driving 70ish miles each way at the time. His office manager pulled me aside later and told me he had instructed her to tell me to go buy a car- and a nice one- on him. I was floored by it. The man is a socially liberal businessman, but loves people. He’ll have my eternal gratitude for making a difference when it mattered! So… thank you John!


  43. buckwheaton says:

    Great story. The CEO’s job is to set a good example and maximize the potential and contribution of every employee.

    The sad downside of this is, thanks to our federal tax law, if the car is worth more than the gift tax limit, this was a taxable event to the young man, who probably does not have the personal funds to pay such. That may mean that the car must be sold and the proceeds used to pay the tax and buy some other car with the money left over. If that is the case, it should not diminish the CEO’s generosity nor the hard work ethic we see here.
