Hero of the Day

I was connected to the WiFi at the McDonald’s by Howard University and enjoying my McChicken sandwich with my 2-year-old, Eboni. She was eating just the bread from her McChicken sandwich. All of a sudden I saw a lady who had been browsing on her cellphone realize that her daughter was not with her. It got really serious and she began calling, Aaliyah!!! Aaliyah!!!. I was so nervous.  I love happy endings, but in reality there is a lot of people who don’t have them. I heard the woman tell  the security guard that Aaliyah had autism. The store manager, Ashley, became a hero for finding Aaliyah outside in the parking lot crying. I spoke with the store manager, she said she understood because she has kids herself. All I could say was THANK YOU.
