There are heroes, and then there’s Gail Lewis.

If you’re not familiar with Gail Lewis, you’re missing out on one of the last truly great Americans.

Lewis posted a video to TikTok recently showing her…well, let’s just say overly dramatic…sign-off after her final day of employment at Walmart after 10 years, along with a teary explanation that she was leaving because she got a better job but that she would miss her Walmart family.
