This Facebook post is going viral after a stranger bought an airplane ticket for a two-year-old girl in need
With all of the troubling (for lack of a better word) news lately, it's easy to feel discouraged and down more often than not.
But once in a while a story will come through that will make you believe in people again – If only for a brief second.
This week's version of that narrative happened in an airport, between a father, his daughter and a complete stranger.
According to Facebook page Love What Matters, a man traveling with a 2-year-old daughter was told that he had to buy his daughter a ticket or she could not board. Under the impression that she didn't need a ticket since she was of eligible age to fly for free at the time the flight was booked, the young father was shocked.
The post claims:
"[The man] was hit with emotion. He mentioned he couldn't afford to rebook this flight or get her the ticket with such short notice. He stepped aside and tried to make a few calls. Hugging his daughter and grabbing his head, you could tell he was heartbroken."
But we promised you that this was a happy story, so here's where it gets good.
A witness claims that a woman standing next to the man began talking to him and went up to the front counter exclaiming that she would buy the ticket for the toddler – The entirety of the $749 ticket.
The post continues:
"The agent kept talking about her goosebumps while the man hugged the woman and asked for her name to repay her. The woman just kept saying, 'Don't worry about it.'"
Is it cold in here or did we just get the best kind of chills?
Another Facebook user commented that she knew the woman, and that this was not an isolated incident -- the generosity is characteristic of the woman:
Life really is good sometimes, people.
