Elderly Man Gets Taken To Disneyland By Stranger, Then Says It Was One Of The Best Days Of His Life
“I’m sorry to bother you, but I’ve had a really rough day,” Garza says to him. “Do you want to go to Disneyland with me today?”
It could’ve been a scam—but this adorable old man, a veteran, trusted Garza and happily agreed. “That’s great! You’d really take me? My gosh.. I can’t believe this… this is great!” he told him.
The video then plays clips of their day at Disneyland, including the two both smiling while on the infamous teacup ride and Garza planting a pair of signature Mickey Mouse ears on the veteran’s head.
“[We] became best friends for the day,” Isaiah captioned part of the video.
At the end of the video, Garza asks his new best friend how it felt to be spending the day in the “happiest place on earth.”
“This is one of the best days of my life,” the veteran answers honestly, beginning to choke up. “I feel like I might be dreaming or something. I thought my life was over. I will remember this day for a long time. You don’t know how much I appreciate this… you really don’t know.”
Garza is known for his content regarding helping others, which comes after he was homeless himself for a couple of years.
“I think it was the pain I went through every day when I would sleep on concrete, shower in public restrooms for years,” he said. “I just told myself I was going to use this energy and harness it for good someday. I never knew how I was going to be able to make money someday to help people, but I always told myself that energy I would harness it for good and it ended up working.”
The video received over 37,000 likes and tons of comments about how tear-jerking it is.
