Two women enjoying a meal at a Tennessee Cracker Barrel provided exactly what our country is starving for – unity and positivity.

The two women, who happen to be black, showed some love and appreciation to Jody McDowell, a deputy with the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department, who happens to be white.

McDowell posted on his Facebook page a touching note written by the ladies. “I want to thank the two sweet black ladies who paid for my breakfast this morning. While waiting for a transport to be completed, I decided to have breakfast at a Cracker Barrel near the Nashville airport. I received this note from them.”

The note read: “BLM… But so does yours! Thank you for your service. Breakfast paid.” [PIC OF NOTE BELOW]

McDowell’s story was confirmed to CNN by Janella Escobar with Cracker Barrel.

“At Cracker Barrel, we believe in treating everyone who walks through our doors as family, and we work hard to foster a welcoming environment for our guests and employees,” Escobar said.

“It makes us especially proud to see when guests take it upon themselves to extend our mission of “Pleasing People” and commit random acts of kindness towards each other, as these two women did yesterday.”

The women left the restaurant before anyone got their names, Escobar said.

McDowell told CNN affiliate WKRN that the women were enjoying a meal before flying to Baltimore, Maryland. Since he unable to get their contact information, McDowell hopes they see his post and know what a positive impact they had.


Thank you, Baltimore ladies, for making this world a better place.
