Observations and views from a different set of eyes

A Town Pays It Forward

on July 28, 2013

I have never been so touched by a story as I am by this one.  A dying Dad is given the opportunity to have a wedding dance with his daughter before he passes.  The town, where he has been a physician and helped so many, pays it forward by arranging and paying for this “mock wedding” in ten short days.

It was a chance for him to share in one of the events he will not be able to be here for and the townspeople were there to share it with him and his daughter.

Get your hankies ready…it’s a beautiful, bittersweet story.

I bow to a town that really knows how to Pay It Forward!

  1. As a woman who never got to dance with her dad on her wedding day, I cried while watching them dance 😦

      I’m sorry you missed that experience with your dad..I also didn’t get to dance with mine. But, I think I would have cried anyway while watching this as it is so touching!

    Awesome! This is a showcase of the compassion the human creature is capable of, now if only we could harness this compassion and pass it around the world.
