Natalie Elle Woods was out having dinner when she overheard her neighboring table gay bashing.
“This gentlemen was discussing how disgusted he was with his gay nephew for being gay and for being liberal,” Natalie said.
Instead of getting mad and confronting them, Woods decided to teach them a lesson about kindness, generosity, and tolerance. She asked the waiter to give her their bill. She wrote a note on their bill and paid for their dinner that night.
Woods posted a picture of the note she wrote to them on social media. she wrote, “Happy Holidays from the very gay, very liberal table sitting next to you. Jesus made me this way. P.S. Be accepting of your family.”
Natalie said that she was inspired by Michelle Obama’s words: “When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. When they go low, you go high.”
While Woods does not feel that she did anything that warrants the type of attention she is currently receiving, she is hopeful that it is sending people the right message.
“I didn’t pay for anyone’s mortgage or name my first born after them, I simply bought their dinner and wrote a message of love and truth,” she wrote on Facebook. “I don’t know whyyyyyyyyyyyyy this is blowing up, but if it inspires kindness or compassion in others, cool.”
