Chick-Fil-A Customer Left Speechless
Eric Comfort of Roswell, Georgia, went into Chick-Fil-A on Veterans Day and found something that left him speechless.
There was a lone table with a plaque that read, “This table is reserved to honor our missing comrades in arms. The tablecloth is white — symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call of duty. The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing and their loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers. The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing. A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers. The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God. The glass is inverted — to symbolize their inability to share this evening’s toast. The chair is empty — they are missing.”
Eric, snapped a picture of the table and put it on Facebook, where it's going viral. Here is what Eric had to say about the response to his posting the picture. "I have been so overwhelmed with messages of appreciation for submitting the photo of the "missing man" table. We should all thank the chick-fil-a at 1201 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, Ga. 30068. They and the vets who served and the ones still serving are the hero's. God bless this great nation and all who protect her and all of us."
To Chick-Fil-A and everyone else who in some way said "Thank You" to our Veterans, Thank You for showing your appreciation.
