Good News Network said that when Ohio Governor Mike DeWine limited food services operations to delivery and carryout transactions, they were worried because it means less income for them. But in an amazing turn of events, this was replaced by tears of joy.

“We’ve got unprecedented times going on, we’ve got people fighting over toilet paper and so on and so forth, and to have a guy show up and care enough about people that give him a beer and a hamburger once in a while, that means a lot. It is humanity at its best,” restaurant owner Benny Leonard told 10TV. “(There were) tears, tears of joy. An unbelievable act of kindness on a pretty weird day.”
