Amanda Berry’s 86 Monte Carlo
While we’re all so happy to hear of Amanda Berry (along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight) enjoying her new freedom, her grandfather is happy to hand over a set of keys.
Just a matter of days before she was kidnapped, Amanda’s grandfather had promised a 1986 Monte Carlo to her. One of the first things she’s done since being free is to call him and ask if it’s still available.
These girls will hopefully be taken care of financially after telling their stories. Movie deals, book deals, interviews…they should all be well-paying “gigs.” Of course, this car, as simple and old and used as it is, is all she wants for now. Should Chevy give her one of their newer models or something equivalent? Maybe! But for now, this girl enjoys the simplicity of what is hers. Maybe we should all learn a lesson of humility and gratitude from Amanda.
