100-Year-Old Veteran Surprised with Trip to Disneyland

100-Year-Old Veteran Surprised with Trip to Disneyland

Often social media brings out the worst in people. Hate and unbridled contempt are commonly hurled at one another online and litter places like Facebook and Twitter. But sometimes, these communication sites are used to show good, touching stories that will bring a tear to your eye.

Isaiah Garza, a TikTok user with 8 million followers, used his channel for good, to impact the life of another. Garza, as the video shows, treated an elderly man, who is also a veteran, to a day at Disneyland.

The video begins with Garza walking up to the unsuspecting man, who uses a walker to move down the sidewalk, and asking if he wants to accompany him to the most magical place on earth.

“I’m sorry to bother you. I’ve had a really, really rough day. I just wanted to see if you’d be willing to go to Disneyland with me today,” Garza asks in the video.

The elderly man is clearly taken aback by the offer.

“You really would take me? My gosh, I can’t believe this,” the man responds. 

The video then quickly cuts to the man enjoying the iconic teacup ride. The text on the video reads that the man “hasn’t been on a ride in over 50 years.”

We then see the elderly veteran wearing a pair of Mickey Mouse ears that Garza purchased for him. Next, Isaiah and his new friend enjoy a ride on “It’s a Small World.”

The man, while thinking about what his day at the Disney park means to him, gets choked up.

“Oh my gosh, this is one of the best days of my life,” he said. “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 don’t know.”

1 Peter 5:5 “And in the same way, let the younger men be ruled by the older ones. Let all of you put away pride and make yourselves ready to be servants: for God is a hater of pride, but gives grace to those who make themselves low.”
