So many troubling events have taken place in the past couple of weeks that we almost hate to turn on the news. Actually, there?s no almost to it. The news can break your heart. But Brothers Osborne showed us that there is still warmth, kindness and humanity in the world and, sometimes, it comes in the most unexpected ways.
In a post on their Instagram page, the brothers shared a short video clip of a silver-haired beauty bopping to their hit single, ?Stay a Little Longer.? In a short time, she is joined by a dance partner that you may find surprising.
The brothers explain, ?A beautiful act of human nature in Austin, Minnesota. 92-year-old Millie Seiver was dancing alone in front of her apartment building when Sgt. Kim Lenz turned up the radio and decided to join the party. THIS is why music is made. Period. God bless our friends in blue, and may we all be as young as Millie one day.?
Seriously, y?all. This chokes us up. And we see you there. Need a tissue?
If you look closely at the video, you can see the reflection of Sgt. Lenz?s hands in the car window and hear her likely working on some paperwork. But you can also hear the music grow louder when she sees Millie enjoying the tunes.
Now, don?t worry. Millie was safe. From the looks of it, she was in the parking lot, not in the street, and clearly Sgt. Lenz wasn?t going to let anything happen to her new country music-loving pal.
Austin Police Department and Millie Seiver, we salute you. Actually, we want to dance with y?all!
