Act Of Kindness Goes Viral - It Doesn't Have To Bleed To Lead (Video)

By Susan Duclos

In this day and age where the motto is, if it bleed it leads, meaning bad news always acquires more traffic and viewers than good news, it is a great thing to see that a random act of kindness by a manager of a Dairy Queen, has roared across the Internet and on television screens.

The Dairy Queen managers name is Joey Prusak and he noticed a blind man had dropped a $20 bill and a woman picked it up but didn't give it back to the blind man. Prusak stepped up and asked, politely, for the woman to return the money, she refused and left.

According to a letter sent to the Company about the incident, what the writer noticed next was unexpected and gives hope to see that there is still much good in the world.

"After I received my order I went and sat in the lobby, on the same side as the young man who dropped the money. Your employee then came into the lobby. What happened next I would never have expected. Your employee approached the young man and took out his wallet, and said Sir, on behalf of Dairy Queen I would like to give you the $20 that you happened to drop on the ground as you walked away from the counter....."

Not only was the act of kindness something not seen as often as it should be, but the fact that it has gone viral means people do care about good things, and it doesn't have to bleed to lead.
