Tracy Connor goes viral with an act of kindness (with the actual Facebook post from Spring Bowlin).

(MEMPHIS, via  WMC Channel 5 Action News)  Clarksdale Walmart employee, Tracy Conner’s act of kindness recently went viral under the tagline “We’ve forgotten how to love one another.”

“Kindness, compassion, empathy and patience goes a long way, even in Walmart,” Channel 5 says in a Facebook post.  This came from a woman at a Clasrksdale Walmart who learned that lesson after watching an older man struggle to count his change at the checkout counter. The woman, Spring Herbison Bowlin, posted about the exchange on her Facebook page.

Bowlin says the man looked back at her and profusely apologized for taking so long. She watched as the elderly man’s hands and voice shook; here’s where kindness comes in.  The cashier took the man’s money and began helping him.

“This beautiful cashier takes his hands and dumps all the change on the counter and says, ‘This is not a problem, honey. We will do this together,'” Bowlin said. “He continues to apologize to both of us as we reassure him it’s okay. They get his transaction handled and he shuffles away.”  Bowlin said she then thanked the cashier for her patience and kindness. But no worries, according to the cashier.

Tracy Conner shook her head and replied, ‘You shouldn’t have to thank me, baby. What’s wrong with our world is we’ve forgotten how to love one another,'” Bowlin wrote.
