Chick-Fil-A CLOSED but for a valiant reason that will make you love them even more

The restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A is known for it’s yummy food, outstanding service and community-centric atmosphere. But this time, a local store went a bit further in showing just how much they care when they paid respect to a fallen police officer.

A town in Griffin, Georgia was mourning the loss of Police Officer Kevin Jordan who was killed in the line of duty while trying to make an arrest at a local Waffle House. He was shot five times in the back. Officer Jordan was an Army veteran and an extremely valued member of the police force.

According to Mad World News,

On Monday, a heartbroken town celebrated the life of a dedicated officer who was killed in the line of duty. Officers from around the state joined to local residents to pay their respects and say their final goodbyes to a beloved member of the community.

For most of the shops in town it was business as usual, except for Chick-Fil-A. The once-demonized restaurant once again provided us with an excellent example of what it means to be a part of a community, and more importantly what it means to be good people.

The company placed a notification at their drive-thru window informing customers that while the funeral precession of Officer Kevin Jordan was traveling past their restaurant, they would be suspending their service out of respect for the fallen.

We hear so much negative news that it is nice to stop and reflect on the positive aspects of society. These types of gestures prove that there are still thoughtful, kind people out there. Kudos to Chick-Fil-A in Griffin, Georgia!
