I went to lunch with a friend of mine. We had just sat down at a table facing the parking lot when I saw a homeless man walk up to a trash can, and started to rummage through it. Everyone else facing the lot just looked away. I sat there for about 5 minutes looking at this man, and could not take it anymore. I told my friend I had to do something. He did not want me to go, but I had too. I walked outside and stood close to the door and said, "Sir, would you like something to eat?" He looked up with a confused look on his face and said "Yes, oh Yes please." I walked with him over to the ordering station, and told him he could have whatever he wanted to eat. He then proceeded to order everything his poor heart could dream of. With a loving smile I handed him the receipt, and told him to have a great day. I was shocked when I turned around and found that people were giving him money. Everyone, after they saw what I did, started to give him money out their pockets. I was so happy to see that my act of kindness trickled down, and that we were able to bring this gentle man happiness if even for a night. : )
DO YOU HAVE ANY STORIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE???
ps: I don't recommenced approaching homeless people alone!!!! Use discretion.
