A declined credit card, not enough cash to pay a $200 grocery bill, a long line of annoyed customers behind you, and a crying baby. It's enough to make most parents want to sink into the floor, and probably how Jamie-Lynne Knighten felt one night earlier this month at a Trader Joe's in Oceanside, Calif., as she tried to calm her 5-month-old and find her phone so she could call her bank. But then 28-year-old Matthew Jackson stepped to the front of the line and offered to pay for her haul. "It just felt like this … great big bear hug," Knighten says. After refusing Jackson's offer, she eventually took him up on it, on the condition that she pay it forward when she had the chance. Knighten got his name and the gym where he worked, and tried to call him more than a week later.
But the manager began crying on the phone: Jackson had been killed in a car wreck less than 24 hours after he came to Knighten's rescue. "Why are the good people of this world taken too soon?" Knighten wrote in a Nov. 20 Facebook post. "He was a year younger than me and engaged to be married." 
Jackson's mom, LeeAnn Krymow, says her son's good deed exemplified his spirit, even when he was a child. "He loved to be kind." Knighten has set up "Matthew's Legacy" Facebook and Twitter tribute pages to "honor a one in a million man by spreading hope and kindness to everyone we meet."
What do we make of a story like that? Life seems so unfair sometimes. But people like Matthew Jackson leave a legacy of warmth and caring--and not a lot of people do that. Of course he will be missed by his family and friends, but an act of kindness starts a ripple effect that touches so many more people than you know. Matthew has found his way to eternity and will be always be remembered for his generosity and kindness.

Oh my god, this is such a terrible tragic story. It's such a heartbreaking story to read, when the best people in the world are those who would be gone in an instant. Why in all people in the world, the universe choose to take these kinds of people instead? That is why we must cherish everything we do at present. We have to make sure that each day count, for we do not know, it may be our last already.

I like this article so much because it shows how strong you are in overcoming the struggles you have encountered in your life. Though life has not been very good to you, know that there are good days and bad days. It's just that you had to experience having the bad days first before being able to experience the good days. There will always be times like this. What matters most is how you would fight back and redeem yourself. You did a good job in rising up from all your problems. Many people are proud of you!

I hope I can meet Matthew before. It is such a good feeling when you meet different people that has a good attitude. I want to meet other people like Matthew. I love dealing with generous people. God has a purpose in everything. Instead of crying, we must celebrate that there is a new member in heaven. When I say celebrate, I am talking to celebration with the Lord. I celebrate through singing and dancing to praise the Lord.
