Passenger Shares Beautiful Moment Of Sign Language Kindness On Alaska Airlines Flight
What a gift to get to witness a beautiful moment of kindness aboard an Alaska Airlines flight.
That is what a woman named, Lynette Scribner, has done and shared with the world on Facebook.
She shares how she was traveling from Boston’s Logan Airport after visiting her sister.
There was a man named, Tim, seated in her row. It appeared he was both blind and deaf.
This is a story about how one man can inspire a wave of kindness. How a plane load of people can find their best selves 30,000 feet in the air.
There were the flight attendants, Tim’s seat mates, and this 15-year-old girl, Clara.
She answered the page when the flight attendants asked if anyone on board knew sign language.
She said she did, explaining she learned it because she has dyslexia and it was the easiest second language for her to learn.
As Lynette says, “I don’t know when I’ve ever seen so many people rally to take care of another human being.”
Which is the point you have to ask, “Who is really helping whom?”
I don’t think anyone can tell the story better than Lynette, herself, so I’ll just share her full Facebook post.
Make sure to read all the way to the bottom with the latest update on the story.
The Daily Mail has some more details on the story.
They report the man is Tim Cook.
And the 15-year-old girl is Clara Daly.
Portland TV station KGW was able to get this interview with both Tim and Clara.
Yes, Tim, I totally agree.
You are an angel maker.
Keep spreading your joy.
