Somehow, the stereotype about teenagers being careless and irresponsible has always been around. Luckily, many teens who do good deeds and kindness help break the negative opinions about these young people. The employees at a coffee shop in Vancouver are just one of them.
What they did for a regular customer in distress vent viral and they got the praise they deserve without even wanting that.
The line at the drive-thru was pretty long and Evan Freeman and his co-workers were doing all in their power to serve everyone just in time, as they always do. But then, a car approached and they noticed one of their regular customers driving it. The woman was obviously not feeling like herself, so Even couldn’t let her go without asking what was wrong.
“And she was like no, she’s just having a really bad day. Her husband passed, and as soon as she said that, I was like there’s nothing more you need to say. We got this. We’re gonna do what we do every time we get someone who’s in pain or hurt. We’re gonna give them our love,” Evan said.
He treated her coffee but he was aware she needed more than that.
In the next moment, he and two of his fellow colleagues leaned out of the coffee shop and reached for the woman’s hands. They all prayed for her and her now late husband.
Evan’s co-worker, Pierce Dunn told the woman how he wished she finds her inner piece.
The sight of the boys offering comfort to the woman grabbed the attention of the person waiting in the car behind so she snapped a photo and shared it online. In just a short amount of time, the touching photo vent viral.
One of the people who stumbled upon it was the coffee shop manager, Jessica Chudek. When she recognized her employees she felt proud.
“I started studying a little more, and I said, ‘Wait, that’s Evan and Pierce. It’s my stand. Those are my kids.’ So I was just brought to tears right then,” Jessica said.
The teens soon learned their kind gesture was seen by many, and although they loved the attention they received, they said how they hoped it will inspire others to be kind to everyone that comes on their way.
What’s most, they added how they will always be there for the woman, as she obviously need company in those hard times for her, and they were more than happy to offer that to her.
News outlets loved the story behind the photo, so they picked it up and made videos. One of them has been seen by almost 200,000 people.
Take a look at the whole story in the video below. We are so glad there are so many teens out there who are ready to offer comfort and help to those in need of some.
