Now here's something that is sure to make you smile today! In an Instagram post, George Lopez tells the story of how he was recently at an airport, and between encounters with autograph seeking fans, he noticed a member of the United States armed forces. He stopped to thank him for his service, and asked him where he was headed. The man told George that he was on his way to witness the birth of his first child, but he was afraid he wouldn't be able to make it on time because he didn't have enough money for a plane ticket, and would have to take a bus. George immediately said "take this and buy yourself an airline ticket." Later, the man sent George pictures of his new born baby, which he included in the Instagram post. What a generous gesture!

By the way, George Lopez is coming to Portland! Catch him September 28th at Merrill Auditorium. Click here for details, and to purchase tickets.
