It’s never easy getting old, nor is it easy realizing that your body simply doesn’t work as it once did.
However one of the most difficult things in life is to accept you own limits as you get older despite feeling every bit as young as you ever were inside, in a body that refuses to operate as it once did.
Returning from a doctors visit, 89-year-old Rose Griest and her 100-year-old husband David stopped at a gas station to use a bathroom on the journey back from Rose’s doctor’s appointment one day. Considering their age they can’t get about like they used to, but are adamant on holding on to some of their independence.
The couple parked their SUV at the first gas station they found, but were visibly exhausted by the time they returned to their vehicle. Rose struggled with her walker and was visibly shaky. She had a difficult time finding her balance and strength, as did her husband David.
Standing close by was Police Officer Kanesha Carnegie who proceeded to assist the elderly duo, when all of a sudden she saw three young men hurrying out the gas station doors.
Rather than help the elderly couple the Officer pulled out her cellphone and record the three men. it turns out the three men who approached were Orlando-based rappers.
While Joc Koe Stoe, Marty, and Freddy G were purchasing items inside the store they had watched Rose and David struggle to their vehicle. Without a second thought they decided to intervene.
Marty said: “I kept thinking, ‘She could have been my grandmother.’”
Officer Carnegie later posted the heartwarming clip to Facebook, where it went viral with over 5 million views.
