Jack Ryan Edwards

2018-08-14 23:16
At one grocery store in Baton Rouge, a store employee’s single action has touched the hearts of many people online. When Jack Ryan Edwards visited Rouses, a grocery store in Baton Rouge, the 17-year-old took interest in an employee who was stocking shelves in the freezer section. “Something in the back of my mind was just like, ‘Ask if he wants to help you,'” thought Jordan Taylor, the 20-year-old store employee. Jack Ryan—his sister Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi calls him Ziggy—has autism, so when Jordan asked if he would like to help him stock the shelves not only was Ziggy thrilled with the offer, but so was his family. “He could have made an excuse and said he couldn’t allow him to help." "Instead, he let him have his moment and in turn gave my family a moment we will never forget." “It might seem like nothing to others, but as you can hear my dad say in the video, ‘I’m watching a miracle right now.'” Since Alwosaibi’s post has gone viral, both Jack Ryan and Jordan have received positive news. Jack Ryan was offered a part time job at Rouses, which he accepted. “The thing that struck me most was Jordan’s demeanor during the encounter,” “What Jordan did for Jack Ryan was beautiful, but Jack also changed Jordan’s life forever."" "… That’s where God comes in.”
