The lovely men from Texas left Harris a $450 tip (on a bill of only $72.60)… that is almost a 625% tip!!! And they wrote a personal message to her that said:
We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless!
If you don’t have chills yet, check out the photo that Harris posted on Twitter…

Harris told The Washington Post:
You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you, but [the customer was] more embracing than even some of my more liberal friends, and there was a real authenticity in our exchange… This definitely reshaped my perspective. Republican, Democrat, liberal are all subcategories to what we are experiencing… It instills a lot of hope.
Please share this story in the spirit of spreading this message! Lets bring our country together instead of divide it! You may be surprised by how much you find that we all have in common. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this story in the comment section below!
