I’m not sure why, but I am feeling especially Christmassy this season. So I thought, rather than write about Trump, the Democrats, or something else political, I would put that on hold this week.
I want to talk about American generosity. It’s something I believe is unique to us. Americans are the most generous people on Earth and maybe throughout all time. And that generosity appears to amplify during the holiday season.
The old saying that it is better to give than to receive is never truer than during the Christmas season in America. And this year it is being played out on a grand scale.
Most of us by now have seen or heard of the generosity of a few celebrities this holiday season.
It all started with the actor Tyler Perry paying off over $400,000 worth of Wal-Mart layaways. Incredible!
Well, word got out about his generosity, and more picked up the ball and ran with it. Inspired by Perry, both rocker Kid Rock and talker Glenn Beck followed suit.
“@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Wal-Mart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You!” Kid Rock said in his tweet.
“Inspired by Tyler Perry’s generosity, I’m stopping by a Wal-Mart in Dallas to bless some people by paying off their layaway,” conservative radio host Glenn Beck captioned a Facebook Live video Saturday, two days before customers’ final payments were due.
