Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover

I was at Target yesterday when I noticed a woman that well to be honest was kind of scary. She was covered in piercings and drenched in tattoos from head to toe. She looked like someone you wouldn't want to mess with.

We were there for awhile browsing around when I heard a voice from behind me ask what my daughters name was. When I flipped around I was taken off guard when I saw it was the very same woman I had noticed earlier. I told her Amelia, and she said, "Amelia; I will pray for Amelia". I couldn't help but start crying.
Never under estimate the kindness of strangers.

I would be crying also. Sometimes we need those strangers to say the right thing. Hope all is going well!

When I worked as a booking agent I met and associated with people that fit this profile, and you know what? 99% of them were some of the nicest people I have ever met. Thank you for sharing this story to open people's eyes that may still have some bias.
