A Tennessee Sheriff’s deputy received a heartfelt surprise after two black women paid anonymously for his food at “Cracker Barrel”.
WTVF reported that Sumner County deputy Jody McDowell was eating breakfast at a restaurant near the Nashville airport when the waitress told him that two black women have already paid for his food.
The waitress also handed him a note penned by those women which said:
“BLM [Black Lives Matter] But so does yours!’ Thank you for your service. Breakfast paid.”
Touched by their gesture, McDowell took a photo of the note and posted it on Facebook to thank the women for their generosity. The photo went viral on Facebook in a short period of time.
“I want to thank the two sweet black ladies who paid for my breakfast this morning. While waiting for a transport to be completed, I decided to have breakfast at a Cracker Barrel near the Nashville airport. I received this note from them,” the post read.
McDowell said that he could not meet those women or get their names or contact information as they left for their flight back to Baltimore, Maryland before the waitress gave him the piece of paper but he hopes that they see his post.
His posts got many views and likes and the people who saw his post were also touched by the women’s gesture and started praising them in the comment section.
“What a beautiful act of kindness. Thank you for your service and best wishes to these two sweet ladies for remembering we are all important,” one person wrote.
“Nice to hear a positive message. Thank you for your service and Thank you to the women who paid for his meal. There is still kindness among us,” another one wrote.
The officer was also overwhelmed by the comments of the people who were moved by the ladies’ gesture.
