NICK EICHER, HOST: Times of crisis do tend to reveal character.
A doorbell camera recently captured good character on display.
Derek and Raquel Pearson of Nampa, Idaho are parents to an 8-month-old boy, Lucas, who was born with a heart condition.
The baby boy needs special supplies to eat and the parents rely on doorstep delivery of those supplies.
So the mom left a note on the front door thanking delivery drivers for their willingness to work during the lockdown.
Here’s where the doorbell camera comes in. It captured the moment when Amazon driver Monica Salinas made a delivery.
After she placed a package on the doorstep, Salinas read the note.
She paused, bowed her head, and prayed for young Lucas before sprinting back to her truck and driving away.
Raquel Pearson told television station KTVB how she reacted when she saw the video.
PEARSON: So I kind of choked up a bit. It’s been really hard to get through this, so I’m really touched that a stranger would take time out of her day to wish our son well like that.
Of course, the video went viral, and inspired many others to go and do likewise.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
