Family in awe as 200 farmers fall silent at auction so they can buy their farm back.

Stories

Have you ever had something so precious, something that’s so important not only for you but for your family? Now, imagine it being taken away from you by someone. It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it? If thinking about that scary thought already sinks you in a sea of fear, then think about it actually happening to someone in real life.

Unfortunately, this is what exactly happened to a Nebraska-based farmer.

Thankfully, this is not a one-sided tragic story, but an inspiring one.
200 farmers showed up to rescue them from this dilemma and helped out the young man. An absolute act of kindness that their family will never ever forget.

The farmer’s name is David and he’s been farming his entire life.
Actually, it’s not only him but his entire family as well. They’ve been doing it for decades, unfortunately, one day, an ancestor decided to sell the 80-acre farmland which broke their hearts into smithereens.

They were all devastated and they felt nothing but defeat on that day.

David didn’t give up easily, he knew that they needed to do something to put the farm back to their possession. Eventually, the land was put up for sale in an auction so they promised to save up as much money as they could in order to buy the farm that’s taken away from them.

When the day of the auction finally arrived, David and his father were shocked to see the number of fellow farmers who showed up. Two-hundred farmers showed up, to be exact. They thought there was no way that they would be able to pull this off — there was no way they could outbid that many farmers!

Luckily, everyone else was on their side.
The other farmers at the auction actually surprised them and ended up doing something pretty selfless and incredible.

When the moment finally came, David and his father placed their bid. Then… crickets. No other farmer spoke up or tried to outbid them. All two-hundred of the farmers were staying clear out of their way — it was something they were not expecting to see at all.

A plan well executed.
All of the farmers who attended the auction actually had the same wish as David, and that’s for them to have their farm back. It sure was an unconditional act of kindness if it so happened that some of them actually have the ability to bid higher.

But no one did, and David couldn’t be happier with what was happening.

Let’s keep our faith in each other, especially during these difficult times. Never lose hope and always believe that one day, this pandemic will be finally over. In the meantime, let’s keep on helping one another by all means, big or small.
