Landon Routzong of Troy, Alabama, has a big heart for the age of 9, and he proved just how big over the weekend at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru. While he and his mother were waiting in line to pick up their lunch, Landon Routzong noticed the Florida license plate on the back of the car in front of theirs. So, he told his mom he wanted to pay for that car’s meal.

“I didn’t want them to waste their money on food because they’re trying to escape the hurricane,” Landon Routzong told ABC News. “I felt like I should help out.”

But in order to pay for the meal, he had to get to the drive-thru window before the Florida car did. As a result, his mother, Tara Parker Routzong, gave him her debit card and told him to run. The man in the Florida car agreed to let Landon Routzong pay for his meal.

Later, the man pulled over to meet the family, telling the mother and her son he was from Miami and was fleeing Hurricane Irma. He said was on his way to Birmingham to stay with relatives.

“Landon and I both had tears in our eyes from how appreciative he was,” Tara Parker Routzong wrote on Facebook in a Friday post detailing the encounter.

Routzong’s post has since been shared over 700 times has over 1,800 likes.

Tara Parker Routzong told Inside Edition she and her husband always try to help out. She was proud to see her son do the same thing.

“A 9-year-old could be focused on so many other things, but whenever a situation presents itself, Landon is always thinking of how we can help,” she said.

Routzong said the encounter gave her hope that she is doing a good job as a mother.

“I often feel like I’m failing because I can’t do it all, all the time and then things like this happen and remind me that I don’t have to,” she said in her Facebook post. “My most important job is going just fine.”

Hurricane Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm after it made landfall along the coast of Florida over the weekend. But the storm’s overall damage has been severe, with more still to come. Irma still had sustained winds of up to 70 mph as of Monday afternoon, while over 6.2 million Floridians have experienced power outages.

UNREAL: American College Literally Says No To Flying American Flag

Hampshire College of Amherst, Massachusetts, has decided, in the face of the oh-so-scary victory by President-elect Donald Trump, to keep the American flag from flying on its campus, according to USA Today.

Hate-based violence accusations are sky-high, so college officials decided to fly the flag at half-staff. The flag was then burned by (presumably) a student. The community was understandably furious, so the same officials decided to remove the flag so no one became further upset.

The Facebook post by Hampshire College President Johnathan Lash said it all.

“Some months ago, the Hampshire College Board of Trustees adopted a policy of periodically flying the flag at half-staff to mourn deaths from violence around the world,” he wrote on Monday. “Last week, in the current environment of escalating hate-based violence, we made the decision to fly Hampshire’s U.S. flag at half-staff for a time while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus.”

“This was meant as an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally, including the many U.S. service members who have lost their lives,” he explained.Leftist Propagandist

A cynic might speculate that Lash added the bit about the fallen service members to appease the community that was so outraged about the flag’s lowering.

“Our intention was to create the space for meaningful and respectful dialogue across the many perspectives represented in our community,” he wrote. “Unfortunately, our efforts to inclusively convey respect and sorrow have had the opposite effect.”if-stupid-could-fly

Only someone who has become completely surrounded by liberalism would be surprised by this consequence. Seriously — what were they thinking?

Here’s what they learned:

“We have heard from many on our campus as well as from neighbors in the region that, by flying the flag at half-staff, we were actually causing hurt, distress and insult,” he wrote. “Our decision has been seen as disrespectful of the traditional expression of national mourning, and has been especially painful to our Hampshire campus colleagues who are veterans or families of veterans.”gag me

After hearing that some community members believed that lowering the flag was a commentary on the election, Lash expressly denied it. However, what Lash claimed removing the flag was all about was pretty telling.

“We hope (taking the flag down) will enable us in the near term to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.”

Now, who could that possibly be pointed toward?definetly
