The headline to this post is placed for a reason because I found out something about Paul Walker that one knew until now.
Let’s start at the beginning. View the video below to get a glimpse of Paul Walker and the accident.
Now you have the information. I wanted to bring this out about Paul Walker that I found on CNN. Here is the excerpt from the story:
Stories of Walker’s incredible generosity have become a major aspect to coverage of the actor’s death.
CNN confirmed one story from a decade ago when Walker noticed a young U.S. soldier shopping with his fiancée for a wedding ring in a Santa Barbara jewelry store.
“The groom was just back from duty in Iraq, and he was going to be deployed again soon and wanted to buy a wedding ring, but he said he just could not afford it,” saleswoman Irene King told CNN. “I don’t think the soldier realized how expensive those rings are, about $10,000.”
“Walker called the manager over and said, ‘Put that girl’s ring on my tab,'” she said. “Walker left all his billing info, and it was a done deal. The couple was stunned. She was thrilled and could not believe someone did this.”
King called it “the most generous thing I have ever seen.” (Source)
Did you catch that? Paul’s legacy is one of generosity. Here is a massively successful film star who quietly gave to others including starting a charity.
What about you? What sort of legacy do you want to leave behind?
