Friday’s Hero; 9.20.13 – Joey Prusak

FRIDAY’SIn a world of sadness when you shake your head sometimes and wonder what we are becoming, there can be a little ray of light that brightens the horizon… meet Joey Prusak.

At 19 years old, Joey Prusak has learned the value of life and how to honor your neighbor.  Joey, an employee of the Hopkins, MN Dairy Queen recently saw a woman steal $20 from a blind customer.

As Joey tells the story, when his blind customer paid his bill he dropped a $20 on the floor.  An elderly woman standing in line behind him snatched up the $20 and put it in her purse.

When Joey confronted the thief she lied and said the $20 was hers, she then began cursing at the good-Samaritan and he asked her to return the money or leave.  She left.

What Joey did next is what makes him a true hero.  After seeing the gentleman’s $20 stolen and the thief leave the scene of the crime, Joey walked up to the man and said…..  ‘Sir, on behalf of Dairy Queen, I would like to give you the $20 that you happened to drop on the ground as you walked away from the counter.’ as he reached into his own wallet to retrieve $20 for the gentleman.

Joey Prusak is 19 years old, Joey Prusak is an example for many of us twice his age, Joey Prusak is a hero.

Thank you for restoring our faith in humanity Joey Prusak and for being the Friday Hero for September 20th, 2013.
