BREAKING NEWS : Two struggling young ladies here in Memphis…

Two struggling young ladies here in Memphis, Tennessee were briefly adopted by several kind hearted truckers here in the back row of the Pilot last night. The girls, Trixie Johnson 19, and Candi Lipz 20, of nearby West Memphis, Arkansas. were visibly moved by the outpouring of support. Their balance and speech even seemed affected as they staggered out of the truck stop and into the warmth of a late model Ford Expedition driven by a young male. These kind truckers took Trixie and Candi into their homes on wheels for only a few minutes each as this reporter watched in awe. Their kindness and support was so overwhelming that it seemed as if the rigs gently rocked as their generosity was given to these young ladies. I overheard one of these good Samaritans offer to help her again next week. He said “anytime sweetie, look for me next weekend” as she exited his vehicle. These kind drivers do this out of the goodness of their hearts and almost seem ashamed of the good deeds that they do. Planting a seed of love and giving in helping others wouldn’t normally be something that one would be ashamed of. To these unassuming truck drivers, kindness is just something that you share without any acknowledgement. This reporter tried to gain interviews with these grand souls but was repeatedly told to go away. I guess some people do good deeds for the praise, while others do it just for kindness. These knights of the highway may not want to be recognized, going even as far as threatening this reporter when I tried to get pictures for this article. Today however, you are noted and your story of good will and generosity will inspire others to help. So in a small way lets play it forward and plant seeds of love in this often unkind world.
