A restaurant owner left the most heartwarming note for the person who was digging through her trash.

I really hope the person comes back.

Ashley Jiron owns a restaurant in Oklahoma. One day she noticed something odd.

From Katie DeLong, FOX 6 NOW:

“Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out," Ashley Jiron, owner of P.B. Jams, said. “That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that."

She could have done what so many do when they come face to face with someone who is desperate — ignore it, decide it isn't her problem, and move on.


But instead, she posted this sign on the door of her restaurant.

Saw this outside of P.B. Jams today. #thatswhatlovelookslike

It's easy to forget that more than 600,000 Americans won't have a home tonight. It's maybe even easier to forget that there are over 17 million families in the U.S. who don't have enough to eat or worry about where their next meal is coming from. When politicians talk about cutting government spending, food stamps is often the first thing on their lips.

Too often, we look away from people who are experiencing great pain or need. Too often, we think they somehow deserve it. Too often we can't put ourselves in their shoes.

And that's why these four small words she included in her note...

"You're a human being."

...mean absolutely everything.

“I think we've all been in that position where we needed someone's help and we just needed someone to extend that hand. And if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being, then I will definitely do it," Jiron said.

Yes indeed.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
