So my husband, who is not on social media, somehow came across this video just now. “Hey J”, he said, “I just saw a video that’s pretty cool and I think your followers would love it. I emailed it to you.”
I watched the video and basically just burst into tears at the wholesomeness of it all. Thanks for making me cry on a Tuesday morning, LOL.
Anyway, I found the original video, which was posted on TikTok by Isaiah Garza, who, according to his website bio is “an entrepreneur, jewelry designer, philanthropist, public speaker, singer & social media influencer.”
Garza, who has a whopping 10.8 million followers on TikTok, used to be homeless, and now his life’s goal is to help those in need.
The viral video, which has over 12 million views so far, shows Garza approaching a 100-year-old veteran and asks him if he would like to go to Disneyland.
Here’s what happened next:
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
When he said, “I thought my life was over. I will remember this day for a long time”, I just lost it. Seriously, you guys, it’s stuff like this that should be front page news.
There is so much good in this world and I love stories like this that remind us of that.
After falling down the “heartwarming TikToks” rabbit hole, I fell across this one, posted by Zachery Dereniowski, who has 11 million followers. The video has nearly 100 million views and shows that, often times, it’s the people who have the least that are the most generous. Oh, my heart…
