WATCH: Florida Shopper Gives Last Generator to Stranger Behind Him in Line

Editor’s Note: This story is one example that people, despite political stripe and background, are basically decent, the best, the American Spirit is alive and well.


A Good Samaritan in a Florida store brought one customer to tears Thursday after he gave up the store’s last generator to a stranger behind him in line.

WFTV reports that Pam Brekke, who traveled 30 miles to a Lowe’s home improvement store in Orlando from her home in Sanford, was in line to purchase a generator to ensure she had power during Hurricane Irma when she noticed that the customer in front of her got the last one in stock.

 “My father’s on oxygen, and I’m worried about this storm,” she said while wiping tears from her eyes.

Brekke told the Washington Post that her father is a Korean War veteran with congestive heart failure and has a pacemaker that keeps him alive. She said that she turns on an oxygen machine every night that pumps oxygen to him to take the strain off his heart.

    Just as we witnessed in the Texas’s Harvey disdaster, we are now seeing more of the American Spirit: helping those in DIRE need. Happened during the Great depression of the 1930’s, and we see this now. Long live that great American Spirit!
