Veteran Was Surprised Seeing His Bill Copy At The Restaurant.
Life can be a very lonely journey sometimes, at times we have no one to speak to or listen to, we’re just all by ourselves. But then even a stranger can put a smile on ones face, by simply lending an ear and sharing company, and here are 7 lonely people who were helped by strangers.
1. War veteran is seen dining alone at a Texas Roadhouse in Savannah, Georgia. While all the other patrons see him sitting alone in his jacket that is all covered with war veteran badges. Some even are taking pictures of this gentleman.
As anyone passes by his booth, he warmly welcomes them, he says “Hi, how are you all doing tonight” and even when you pass him to go leave, you’ll find a courteous tone wishing you goodbye and have a good night.
Some patrons took an interest and some just ignored him. But the waiter, out of all the patrons, was the only one to go and personally meet the war veteran, kneel down on the side of the booth to listen to all the interesting stories the vet had for the kid.
When it came to paying the bill, the war veteran was happily surprised to know that everything had been already taken care of. In fact, everyone around in the restaurant, looking at the waiter and the veteran indulged in a conversation, everyone offered to pay his bill.
A simple act of kindness like saying a sincere welcome, or paying for someone’s dinner can make all the difference.
2. This Florida state university’s football player who did what we all should do, it’s a small act of kindness that has made a big impact.

4. We sometimes lose sight of the fact that every day we have a choice. We can choose to connect to those around us, or we can choose to close ourselves off. Some days we may not feel like reaching out to others, but on days when we can, you never know just what may come of it.
When Brooke Ochoa arrived at her favorite restaurant for lunch, she noticed an elderly woman by the name of Delores sitting all by herself. She timidly walks across and asks her if it’s okay if they had lunch together.
Turns out Delores recently lost her mom, and now she didn’t have any company. They both had a wonderful talk and kept listening to each others stories.
And now they’ve decided to have lunch together every Thursday afternoon.
5. Gracie Wilson, 3, of Henderson, KY., was having breakfast with her parents at the same restaurant as Santa Claus. But the older white-haired, white-bearded, well-bellied man with round gold-rimmed glasses and red suspenders was eating alone.
So she joined him. After a hug and a “Hi, Santa,” “She pulled up a chair and they just started having a conversation like they knew each other for years The toddler was worried Santa had no one to talk with.
When the local news reporter caught up with the bearded man, he said “I thought that was pretty special she understands, I think, about having friends, and she was quite a special young lady,” he said. “I am gonna have a few surprises for her this year.”
6. High school can be a very intimidating place, especially for the new kids who just transferred from elementary school. This Australian school kid, was just 11 years old, about to turn 12 and has been sent to high school. He’s obviously scared and can’t bring him self out to start speaking with the other kids and making friends. He’s seen sitting alone, hiding in the lunch room and having his food alone.
Fortunately, a senior at the same school knows how it feels to be lonely in the beginning days. So he decided to make lunch time special for this new kid. He first sat with him alone and asked him questions about his favorite video games, what subjects does he study, what does he wanna become when he gets older, basically just to make him feel comfortable.
Then he got all his friends to sit at the same table and then they all included the new kid in their jokes and conversations.
7. “When you walk into the lunchroom and you see all the tables of everyone sitting there and you know that going up to them would only end in rejection, you feel extremely alone and extremely isolated, and your stomach drops. And you are searching for a place to eat, but you know that if you sit by yourself, there’ll be so much embarrassment that comes with it because people will know and they’ll see you as the girl who has nowhere to sit. So there’s so many awful feelings that come along with it.”- said 16-year-old Natalie Hampton from Sherman Oaks, California.
While in school Natalie created an app called ‘Sit with us’ to ensure that no kid has to sit alone in the lunch room. “I felt that if I was thriving in a new school but didn’t do anything about the people who feel like this every single day, then I’m just as bad as the people who watched me eat alone,” Natalie continued. “I felt like, with my story, it was my job to stand up and do something about all the kids who feel like this every day. And I wanted to create something that would address bullying, but in a positive way.”
