A woman was followed by two men at Walmart and wants to warn other women.

Lauren attempted to get help from a Walmart employee, but she wasn’t successful. The employee explained that there was nothing that could be done at the time because the men hadn’t endangered Lauren in any way.

She went to her car, but noticed an even more concerning interaction as she sat in the parking lot. “I see the two men walk out and they were with a girl,” Lauren exclaimed. “And they were not with a girl in the store the entire 30 minutes that I was in there.”

Lauren then leaped into action and made a daring decision, which she admits could have been very dangerous.

Lauren approached the men as they tried to victimize another woman.

Lauren wasted no time approaching the men, who were now leaving the Walmart with a seemingly innocent woman. “She said, ‘They told me they hit my car in the parking lot, and they wanted me to come and see the damage,” Lauren recounted the woman saying.

Stunned by the claim, Lauren then suggested to the woman that the men were being dishonest and that she shouldn’t go with them. Lauren was able to convince the woman to return with her inside the store to get help from a Walmart employee.

“I said, ‘Let’s go back inside, I’m going to grab a worker.’ And those two men disappeared,” Lauren revealed. The content creator, who has more than 2 million followers on TikTok, went on to warn women about potential dangers. Adding, “Even if someone does actually hit your car in a parking lot, go out with a worker to go see it.”

Women are sharing their attempted kidnapping stories on TikTok to warn others.

Lauren isn’t the only person who has shared a horrific story on TikTok about a potential kidnapping. Jordan Rainer recalled a 2020 incident where she was approached by a man on an isolated highway.

Jordan was taking a walk when a man in a black sedan passed her on the road. “This car he drives past me, but only about 10 yards and then stops right in front of me,” Jordan explained. Adding, “I continue to stand there, I don’t walk past the car.”

Jordan claimed that the man then put his car in park as he proceeded to stare at her from the side mirror. She pretended to dial 911, and the man drove away. Jordan was able to call her friend for assistance, and she was picked up from her location within minutes.

As Jordan was leaving with her friend, the man in the black sedan returned. “We’re watching him in the rearview mirror, and y’all he parks his car right where I was standing… And he is looking for me.”

All of the videos are terrifying, but they’re a good reminder that woman need to be careful and aware of their surroundings at all times.

Grandfather Before and After WWII: Video Shows War Effects

Published

on

A 10-second video shows before and after pictures of a man who fought in World War II. He looks shell shocked and many viewers could relate.

Singer-songwriter Julia Still told a sobering story in a video only 10 seconds long, sharing photos of her grandfather before his time in World War II and after.

“Thinking about how my grandfather looked like a totally different person after serving in WWII,” Julia wrote in the Nov. 29 TikTok video as she posted the before-and-after comparison.

The before-and-after photos of Julia’s grandfather are a “clear representation” of the ravages of WWII.

In the first photo, Julia’s grandfather looks like a self-assured young man, fixing a steely gaze toward the camera. In the second photo, however, he appears gaunt and his eyes aren’t as focused — the “thousand-yard stare” exhibited by so many WWII veterans — as he poses next to his wife.

“It’s the most clear representation of what war does to a man that I’ve ever seen,” Julia wrote in the photo caption. “The second picture is his wedding photo. They got married as soon as he came home.”

When a TikTok commenter observed that the man’s eyes “look so haunted” in the second pic, Julia agreed. “They do,” she wrote.

Another commenter, meanwhile, wrote, “He is so handsome before, and after, he looks… lost. Sad.”

To that, Julia replied, “It breaks my heart. He spent most of his life self-medicating with alcohol and was a pretty distant man.”

And in another comment, Julia told her TikTok audience that her grandfather wouldn’t tell anyone what he went through. “Always said he was ‘just a cook,’” she added.

Other TikTok users shared similar stories from the veterans in their families.

Elsewhere in the comments under Julia’s video, TikTok users described how war trauma impacted their family members.

“Mine aged as well,” one person wrote. “You could see in his face. He had such bad shell shock, too. I always remember people telling me to never wake him up. I miss him.”

Another user commented, “Mine came back and fed every stray animal he saw because he was a [prisoner of war] and understood their hunger after that. He was presumed dead for a while.”

A third TikToker said their grandfather fought in the Pacific during WWII. “Lived until he was 97 and always said he could still hear their screams, taste their blood, and feel the bombs,” that TikToker wrote.

Another person commented, “My grandma and mom sat up nights with my grandfather hallucinating he was in France, about to fight, 30 years later. Hid anything he could use as a weapon.”

Someone else shared, “My grandpa was on the beaches of Normandy. Never talked about it, and one day we found his draft papers. When reading them out loud, I saw that man cry for the first time.”

And there were yet more stories of shell shock. “My papa went in at 17 and came back a year after most of the men had come home,” a different TikTok wrote. “He looked completely different, too. Left a boy and came back a haunted man.”

FYI, if you’re dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, or you know someone who is, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website offers information, treatment options, and programs for service members impacted by PTSD.
