“WOW okay so the most amazing thing just happened to me and I can’t help but share it with the world. American Airlines instituted a new policy where you have to pay to take a carry-on onto the plane. Which is ridiculous but off topic.

I consolidate my bags into one and they measure it and say it’s just a little too big. They proceed to charge me $50, except they only take credit card, no cash. Since I just got back from Europe all my cards are being declined as Chase doesn’t know I’m back.

They tell me I’m going to have to miss the flight and head back to the ticket counter to pay down there. I’m pleading, devastated after a long day of travel. Then, this man walks up and says, ‘How much is it?’ They tell him $50 and he says, ‘I got it.’

My heart is so happy. There are good people in this world. Be that person for someone because I know after this I sure will be.

Jermaine was the nicest guy in the world. I wrote all of this before I knew it was him. It wasn’t about him being a football player but the act of kindness. I’m glad his platform allows others to see how one small act can change someone’s day or life.”
