The shooting surround the Orlando massacre is controversial for a number of reasons, but putting that debate aside for a moment, one of the victims of the shooting, Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo’s grandmother was on a JetBlue flight to
Orlando for the young man’s funeral.
JetBlue employee Kelly Davis Karas and her colleagues decided to do something for the grandnother to show their love and support that will definitely give you a lump in your throat and help restore your faith in humanity. You can read Kelly’s Facebook post below;
“Today my dear friend Melinda and I had the sad
privilege of attending to his grandmother on our flight as she made her
journey to Orlando to join her family during this unspeakable time.
Knowing she was making this hard journey alone, JetBlue employees
made sure to be at her side every step of the way. Melinda stood
quietly by her wheelchair while we waited until it was time to board.
Kellie, the gate agent, boarded with her and helped get her settled.
Melinda and I gave her a blanket, a pillow, a box of tissues and water
so she could be as comfortable as possible. She was understandably
distraught, but met us with kindness and gentleness. And gratitude.
But here’s where our flight got truly inspiring. I had the idea
to pass around a piece of paper to everyone on board and invite them to
sign it for this grieving grandmother. I talked it over with Melinda and
she started the process from the back of the plane. As we took beverage
orders, we whispered a heads up about the plan as we went.
Halfway through, Melinda called me, “Kel, I think you should
start another paper from the front. Folks are writing PARAGRAPHS.” So I
did. Then we started one in the middle. Lastly, running out of time on
our hour and fifteen minute flight, we handed out pieces of paper to
everyone still waiting.
When we gathered them together to present them to her, we didn’t
have just a sheet of paper covered in names, which is what I had
envisioned. Instead, we had page after page after page after page of
long messages offering condolences, peace, love and support. There were
even a couple of cash donations, and more than a few tears.
When we landed, I made an announcement that the company had
emailed to us earlier in the morning to use as an optional addition to
our normal landing announcement, which states “JetBlue stands with
Orlando.” Then with her permission and at the request of a couple of
passengers, we offered a moment of silence in Omar’s memory.
As we deplaned, EVERY SINGLE PERSON STOPPED TO OFFER HER THEIR
CONDOLENCES. Some just said they were sorry, some touched her hand, some
hugged her, some cried with her. But every single person stopped to
speak to her, and not a single person was impatient at the slower
I am moved to tears yet again as I struggle to put our experience
into words. In spite of a few hateful, broken human beings in this
world who can all too easily legally get their hands on mass assault
weapons – people ARE kind. People DO care. And through our customers’
humanity today, and through the generosity of this wonderful company I
am so grateful to work for, I am hopeful that someday soon we can rally
together to make the world a safer place for all.
I will never forget today. #Orlandoproud”
Aside from blaming the lack of gun control, without fully understanding the inner workings of deep state politics and how organizations like the CIA actually work, you can really appreciate the sentiment here because the most important thing of all, is that we don’t be overcome by fear and foolishness, but that we stand together in solidarity.
In closing it is important to mention that the only solution as she pointed out is that we rally to make the world a safer place for all, but this can only be done through becoming informed and aware of where the actual threat is and has been coming from throughput history, which is the elite. Until we become informed, taking action will only benefit those who create the problem in search of a predictable solution.
