What’s Good: Teen Pushes Disabled Man Home During Tornado Siren
It's the small acts of kindness that are done without wanting a "thank you" or any recognition that get the most recognition to prove there is some good in the world.
Gregory Beck is a resident in St. Louis whom is legally blind and lost both of his legs last year, so is in a wheelchair. Beck normally wheels himself to the supermarket and to get there and back to his home, it takes 25 minutes. He usually has to stop at least 10 times to rest, and this became a problem for him this past weekend.
Beck was at the supermarket when the area got a warning of severe storms heading their way. On his way home, the tornado sirens started going off and although Beck was attempting to get home as fast as he could to get somewhere safe, cars started honking at him. As Beck attempted to cross the street, drivers were honking at him and yelling at him to hurry up, but no one would get out to actually help him... until a teenager finally did.
16-year-old Seth Phillips and his mother were driving home when they saw this even occur. Phillips mother stopped the car so her son could get out to push Beck back home. Phillips mom was so proud she recorded a video and posted it to Facebook so her family could see. Good for him! The sad part is that it took one teenager to help out this disabled man compared to adults yelling at him to hurry up.
