I thought this was cool and needed to be posted...People either love Chick-Fil-A or hate it ever since the company’s president, Dan Cathy, espoused his religious beliefs regarding same-sex marriage. But love-it-or-hate-it, Chick-Fil-A seems to consistently go well-above the call of duty for good, upstanding Americans and the communities surrounding each restaurant.
The town of Griffin, Georgia was mourning the loss of Police Officer Kevin Jordan who was killed in the line of duty. According to Mad World News, Jordan was shot five times in the back while trying to make an arrest at a local Waffle House. He was an Army veteran, a dedicated member of the police force, and a father of seven children.
As officers from around the state of Georgia joined local residents last Monday to pay their respects to Jordan, Chick-Fil-A honored the serviceman in a unique way: the local Griffin Dwarf House location placed a notification at their drive-thru window informing local customers that as a sign of respect for the fallen the restaurant would not be serving during the time Jordan’s funeral precession was passing the restaurant.
Though seemingly small, it was a gesture that Chick-Fil-A took to show the community, Jordan’s family, and the world that people are what truly matter. It’s one more reason we continue to fall in love with Chick-Fil-A all over again.
