see the beauty

 

I heard an amazing story today:

There was this man who was the president (I think) of a company.  The company had made some decisions that caused them to have to take a buy out from a larger company.

He had two decisions…he could become richer than his wildest dreams and have everything taken care of finacially for him for the rest of his life.

OR

Allow 50 people to continue to have jobs so that they don’t have to worry about where their next paycheck is coming from.

What did he choose?

What was more important to him?

It was more important to him for the 50 people to have jobs than for him to get a huge sum of money.

It was more important for him to allow those 50 people to continue to have a consistant paycheck so that their families didn’t have to worry.

He chose others over himself.

Some may not agree with the decision he made…but I am proud of him.

Granted, I do not know all of the details within this story, but the details that I do know reinforce the opinion I have of him.

Who is this unnamed man?

This man, is my grandfather.  And it makes me swell with pride to say so 🙂
