Georgia, U.S.A., April 2021

In the early hours of a Saturday morning, a burglar broke into Carl Wallace’s restaurant, Diablo’s Southwest Grill. But lucky for him, Wallace has an unusually big heart.

When he found the front door smashed in and surveillance footage of the suspect, he saw an opportunity.Wallace took to his Facebook page to extend a helping hand.

He wrote:
Our burritos are such a smash hit we’ve got people breaking in at 4am for their fix.
So if ya see our door looking hurricane fabulous at Wheeler Rd this is why.
To the would be robber who is clearly struggling with life decisions or having money issues... please swing by for a job application.
There are better opportunities out there than this path you’ve chosen.
No police, no questions. Let’s sit down and talk about how we could help you and fix the road you’re on.
Sincerely Carl

The thief has not yet come forward, but Wallace’s compassionate post has earned him a ton of respect around Augusta, Georgia. “I thought it was probably one of the best things that I had ever read,” says customer Cher Best. “So as a result of what I read and the compassion… I wanted to support the business.”

We’ll leave you with a bumper sticker-worthy quotation from Mr Wallace himself: “Love, kindness, forgiveness will always be a better solution than hate.”
