Tired of all the bad news out there? Well, I have the feel-good story of the day for you. You can thank me later. It turns out that there are good people everywhere you look, they just don’t usually get noticed. But sometimes a good deed speaks for itself and this is one of those times. And it went down in Louisiana.
A store clerk was caught on video patiently helping an autistic man named Jack Ryan Edwards stock shelves. That was the clerk’s job but this young man had a dream to stock cold shelves and didn’t want to be paid. He just wanted a chance to do it and Jordan Taylor kindly gave him that chance. Jordan works for Rouses Markets in Baton Rouge. He helped Jack stock shelves for approximately half an hour and it meant the world to Jack.
When the video was posted on social media by Jack’s family it went uber-viral. In the post’s caption, Jack’s sister Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi wrote:
“Talk about a stand up young man!!!! My dad took Ziggy to Rouse’s yesterday and apparently he was interested in stocking the shelves.
“We all know autism makes going out difficult, and sometimes grocery stores can be a challenge.
“This young man took the time to slow down and allow Jack Ryan to help for over 30 minutes, guiding him as he finished his task.”
Delaney also added: “He could have ignored him. He could have made an excuse and said he couldn’t allow him to help. Instead, he let him have his moment and in turn gave my family a moment we will never forget.”
The whole good deed was filmed by Jack’s father. You can see both guys carefully stocking the shelves with fruit juices and dairy products. Jordan handed items to Jack and showed him where to put them. Jack’s sister said that the clip may seem like ‘nothing’ to others, but it meant a lot to their family. She also noted that her dad can even be heard saying: “I’m watching a miracle right now.” It’s amazing what a simple act of kindness can do.
But wait… there’s more! Delaney has since launched a GoFundMe page for Jordan and she has raised over $130,000 for him so far. The money is to send Jordan to college. “Jordan told me he loves math and would like to possibly be an educator someday,” Delaney said. “All I know is, whatever he decides to do he will excel! Thank you to Jordan for what you did for our Ziggy, we will never forget!” Donations are pouring in for Jordan and it is safe to say his wish to go to college is now granted. I’d say he has a very bright future ahead of him.
Others are now sharing their experiences with relatives with autism. Someone wrote, “I have a 17-year-old son on the spectrum and seeing the kindness of people like yourself reminds me that there are still people in the world who care. Thank you for taking the time to teach. Your family should be very proud of you.” Yes, they should and I’m sure they are. Another person commented: “As the mom of an adult son with an autistic spectrum disorder I just wanted to say thank you for being so patient and kind with Jack. All too often people aren’t and that is really sad. The world is a better place because you are in it and are leading by example. God Bless You.”
Jordan is truly a good guy and it’s nice to know they still exist out there. He also just received a car from Neighbors FCU and Enterprise Car Sales. It looks like he’s all set for school now and all because he committed an act of kindness and expected nothing in return. That’s how it should work.
Jordan could not be there to accept the generous gift as he’d already started classes at Grambling State University this week, so his mom Teresa accepted the gift for him. “On behalf of Jordan I just want to thank everyone for making this possible,” Teresa Taylor said. “What Jordan did, it wasn’t for form or fashion. That was just him being Jordan. As a family, we greatly appreciate this.”
Congressman Garret Graves also showed up to show his support. “If anybody deserves credit here, it’s (Jordan’s) mother,” Graves said. She certainly does. She raised a very good son and should be very proud of him. “What we’ve seen over the recent years is the people that are getting attention are the ones that are that are divisive. And here what’s happening is, the good deeds are being recognized.” Spoken like a true politician but nevertheless, it is heartwarming to see someone do something good and then get the recognition they deserve.
Taylor was also given a $500 gas card to help with driving expenses. “We are so proud of Jordan for pursuing his dream of becoming a math teacher by enrolling at Grambling State University,” Neighbors President and CEO Steve Webb said. “We are elated that Neighbors is able to provide a car for Jordan to visit his family while he is away at college.” It’s a smart thing to do… great publicity for the credit union and a richly deserved reward for kindness shown by a young man who just wants to teach. What a wonderful story.

Tragic Death Leads To Country Music Star Canceling CMA Awards Appearance
Sometimes, fate comes knocking when we least expect it. That happened to country singer Kenny Chesney last night at the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards). An unexpected death in his family kept him away although he was nominated for “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year.”
No details are available at this time on who the family member is. Chesney did not speak about what happened on Twitter either. Keith Urban took home the Entertainer Of The Year award. But I’m sure the thoughts and prayers of the thousands viewing the awards were with Chesney in his hour of grieving and need. The Daily Caller has more on this sad news and the music awards:
The 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards) took place Wednesday night, but one huge singer was notably absent from the festivities.
Kenny Chesney, 50, was nowhere to be found.
The “American Kids” singer, who was up for the “Entertainer Of The Year” and “Musical Event Of The Year” (for “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”) awards, skipped the show due to a sudden death in the family. No further details about the tragedy are available at this time.
Ahead of the glitzy event, the Country Music Association Twitter account informed its over 750,000 followers that Chesney would not be in attendance.
CMA Musical Event of the Year winner & Entertainer of the Year nominee @KennyChesney will be unable to appear on tonight's telecast due to a death in the family.

Chesney did not address the news on his personal Twitter account, but he did thank his co-performer David Lee Murphy for his hard work on “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” which took home the Musical Event Of The Year award.
Sometimes you hear songs & they just feel good. Occasionally one that feels good says something that people need to hear. That’s how I felt about Everything’s Gonna Be Alright when I heard it. Proud to have been part of this with my friend @davidleemurphy. #musicaleventoftheyear pic.twitter.com/X7l6esqcXq

Alyssa Milano Angers Unhinged Libs For Turning Her Back On Their HERO Avenatti
Alyssa Milano is one of those Hollywood stars on the way out desperate for attention. She has embraced just about every radical leftist cause out there. But give credit where it is due. Milano was doing the right thing when she vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties. Now, she has made a second good call.
Michael Avenatti, bombastic attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, was arrested last night for felony domestic violence. He allegedly punched a woman in the face that is not his wife and the left is in meltdown mode over it.

Chicks on the Right has more on Milano’s change of view:
I mentioned a few days ago, when Alyssa Milano vowed never again to speak at the Women’s March because of their anti-Semitic ties, that it may have been the first and only time I would ever give Alyssa Milano any credit for anything.
Michael Avenatti was arrested on felony Domestic Violence charges last night, and Alyssa realized this wasn’t about “sides.” This was about a man allegedly punching a woman in the face.
Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.
It was later confirmed that the victim was NOT his estranged wife – as originally reported.
HOWEVER – It is important to note that this doesn’t mean the incident didn’t HAPPEN. It means it didn’t happen TO HIS WIFE.
Update: We can confirm that Michael Avenatti (DOB: 02-16-71) was booked this afternoon on a felony domestic violence charge (273.5 PC). His bail is set at $50,000.

This was enough for Alyssa:
— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) November 14, 2018
Good on her. This IS NOT about sides.
Avenatti has always been scum. I wouldn’t want anything to do with him in the first place. And she’s EXACTLY right. I would be wary any Republican who found himself in the same situation.
But people are REEEALLY ticked off at Alyssa, because you know… Avenatti was supposed to be our PRESIDENT.
Seriously?? Wow! I’m really surprised by your rush to judgment. Guess he’s not valuable to you anymore? I prefer to wait for facts before publicly disavowing and shaming someone. Might want to delete this tweet and hold tight a bit.
— LAintheOC (@LAintheOC) November 15, 2018
I'm not a fan of Michael Avenatti. And I believe victims should be given the utmost deference.
But I would be a slow to judge on this one. I don't know if Avenatti did it or didn't. But I do know that alt-right trolls have been trying to set-up political figures on the left.
— SwerveForThe Girl (@SfortheG) November 15, 2018
“Believe all women” …or call them alt-right trolls. Whatever.
And listen – I get it – we shouldn’t be quick to assume someone’s guilty of everything they’re ever accused of. But here’s a question: how many of these people stood up for Kavanaugh?
Before anyone judges Mr. Avenatti he deserves the same due process that everyone in America is entitled to. He has been an advocate of protecting immigrant children for FREE. He is the reason Michael Cohen is speaking to Mueller. Trump, Fox, and GOP hate him and this stinks!!
— Elizabeth Holmes (@HolmesTeganimi) November 15, 2018
DUE PROCESS? That’s a new one.
I read it's on SUSPICION of, NOT proven (yet) abuse. Has it changed? I don't want to condemn the guy into I have more facts. I don't like being judge, jury and executioner.
— Avery R. Russell ⚧ ⚨ (@YouEnbyMe) November 14, 2018
Again… what about Kavavanugh? Where were y’all then?
Where are the facts? You know the truth. We don't want another good man discarded as Franken was. Let's wait & see.
— linda may (@lindamayb) November 14, 2018
“A good man.” LOLOLOLOLOLOL.
Also how exactly has he been protecting children other than doing self-serving interviews?
Sorry, Avenatti set the new rules. His career should be over just based on the allegation. Truth is immaterial. He wanted to sink a judge with specious unsubstantiated claims. Not only is he in the same boat he has actually been ARRESTED.

Believe all women. Y’all set the bar. Now you gotta stick to it.
