When things happen to your children in public, you usually aren’t given that much time to react quickly and save them from further harm. Sometimes, you may be interrupted by other people who are out and about on errands of their own, or an employee might not know what to do in such a situation. That’s where this mom found herself when her son with special needs injured himself in public. While the other shoppers stared on in confusion, one quick-thinking employee stepped in to save the day!
In the flurry of activity that surrounded the incident, Lynn wasn’t able to remember the employee’s name. She was so touched by the moment that it was a bit overwhelming (I would imagine most people would feel the same way!) and so she shared her story to spread the word and hope that they might find the awesome young man. The best part? After all of the shares and messages to Apple, the employee responded to all of the love and support! He was found, and able to receive the gratitude and thanks from parents everywhere with kids like James!
Hey Lynn, I want to say thank you so much for those kind words! I began working at Apple in hopes of having fulfilling moments like this. Post Apple my hopes are to work within the realm of youth counseling. Thanks again for making my day!”
As much help as this employee was to Lynn and her son James, they were just as much a part of his experience as well. Meeting this mother and son and being able to help them reaffirmed that he was choosing the right path in life! What a precious story – we need more people like this in the world!
