Elderly Woman Passes Out - Customers Shocked When They See What Employee Is Doing To Her

If you were to go only by headlines these days, you would think all of America is involved in bitter race wars. While the headlines do harp on some tragic incidents, on a day-to-day basis, it’s just not something you see.

A shopper at a Georgia Walmart walked into the store and noticed a very odd site. A customer and an employee were sitting on the floor together. As soon as the witness realized what was going on, she snapped a photo.

She posted it on Facebook, praising the young man who went above and beyond the call of duty. The woman says that it reminds her that things are much better than the media would have you believe.

Brittany McKee, a registered nurse, was shopping on Thursday with her husband when she came across an elderly woman who had passed out in the store. They rushed to the woman's aide.

"Being a registered nurse, my first instinct was of course to stop, assess, and be there to help. She had regained orientation, but did say she was on blood thinners and felt dizzy," wrote McKee.

The nurse stayed with the unidentified elderly woman until an ambulance arrived. McKee says she was touched by one Walmart employee, named Jason.

"I don't know his last name, but this man, no questions asked got down on the floor with this woman and supported her back so she could lean against him," she said. "He literally got down on the floor to serve her, not because he was asked to do it, he wasn't, but because he wanted to. "

Jason is a young African-American man who came to the older white woman's assistance, and it got McKee thinking about how race relations are portrayed on the news. "The media lately shows our country divided, filled with hate and racial tension, but this right here was one human being loving and serving another without condition of race or obligation," she reported.

She says she witnessed other people doing kind things as well that day. "While we waited, another man stopped, knelt down and prayed over this woman," she recalls.

Even though it was a health scare for one woman, McKee has walked away from the incident with a good feeling.

"What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving," she wrote in her post. "We are human beings, each and every one of us regardless of how much pigmentation our skin has or doesn't have. I couldn't help but share because the media doesn't seem to report this... the unity and the positive that occurs. This right here is real life, this is what it's all about, not hate."

Within hours, the post, along with a photo of Jason helping the woman, went viral. It has received around 400,000 likes and nearly 200,000 shares.

There may be a lot of disagreement and stress these days over racial issues, and many people remain divided. However, with incidents like these, it shows that we are not as divided as we might think.
