A waitress at a Chili’s in San Antonio paid for the meal for the family of one of the victims in the Uvalde school shooting, writing a note on the receipt, saying “I support you in this necessary fight.” Kimberly Mata-Rubio, whose 10-year-old daughter Lexi was killed in the school shooting at Robb Elementary School, tweeted about the kind gesture last weekend. 

Mata-Rubio tweeted a photo of the message that read, “Our hearts are with you. I know prayers aren’t enough…I stand with you. #uvaldestrong.” The note comes after Mata-Rubio was vocal about the results of the Texas midterm election, in which Gov. Greg Abbott defeated his challenger Beto O’Rourke. 

“I wanted to send a message but, instead, the state of Texas sent me a message: my daughter’s murder wasn’t enough,” Mata-Rubio tweeted on Election night. “Just know, you f**ked with the wrong mom. It doesn’t end tonight. I’ll fight until I have nothing left to give. Lexi’s legacy will be change.”

Mata-Rubio tweeted that the “sweet” note from the Chili’s waitress showed that “there are people in” her corner.

Other families of the Uvalde mass shooting also spoke out on the election outcome. Kimberly Garcia, whose daughter Amerie Jo Garza was among the students who lost their lives, tweeted, “I hope your family never gets killed like the way my child did. @GregAbbott_TX.”

According to official results, 60.18% of Uvalde County residents voted for Abbott compared to 38.32% who voted for O’Rourke.
