“This was my first Black Friday shopping experience, and I'll never forget what I saw.”
As for myself and my Black Friday experience in the parking lot at Wal-mart at 10:15 PM Thursday night. I witnessed a scruffy college-age student dodge a car while walking through the parking lot. Then, the car's driver blew his horn. The scruffy man who avoided getting hit turned to the car's driver and shouted loudly three words.
“Jesus loves you.”
