It's rare to find a company that stands by its moral compass as strongly as does Chick-Fil-A. The company is notorious among liberal circles for being closed on Sunday, for its owners standing by their moral beliefs, and for representing strong, conservative, American values.

It's all the more impressive, then, that Chick-Fil-A broke its "closed on Sundays" rule for all of the franchise locations in northern Texas. The reason? Helping out those in need during the holiday season of giving.

Because of deadly storms that have swept through the area over the past several days, many people have suffered during a time of year that is typically a time of celebration. Chick-Fil-A recognized the need and responded.

Branch managers of several of the famous chicken restaurants worked tirelessly to prepare food for victims of the storms as well as members of first-responder teams that were busy spending their holidays helping others.

Tornadoes, it appears, weren't enough to dampen the magic of the holiday season.

While some might attack Chick-Fil-A for their conservative stance, it's impressive to see a company that works so hard to help others, even at the sacrifice of some of its most strongly held values. In today's society where we see companies and conglomerates raising prices with no thought for the consumer and making products that are more and more selfish, a company that actually sacrifices something outside of a TV commercial is rare.

On one hand, it's impressive that Chick-Fil-A would relax their strict, "no Sundays" policy. But it's also impressive that the managers and employees of the chain would work so hard during a period when they would much rather be with their families.

After all, what good are values when people are legitimately suffering? Chick-Fil-A had the opportunity to help out people and took it.
