There are few things in this world as refreshing as a child’s innocence and compassion. One woman’s daughter proved this when she noticed a homeless man crying and decided to stop and ask why.
When the man told her that he had no home and no food, she immediately wanted to help. The girl’s mom was amazed by the kindness of her 6-year old and decided to share the story on Facebook.
It ended up going viral for helping people to realize that there are people out there who simply want to help others. The post on Facebook touched so many people that it even ended up gathering over 203,000 likes, over 60,400 shares, and nearly 8,000 comments. Just wait until you hear her beautiful story below!
“After leaving out of the store today my daughter did something that really made me stop and think. There was this guy sitting there crying and she asks me ‘did you see that man crying? What’s wrong with him?’
I said yes but I’m not sure maybe he’s just sad…She said, ‘maybe he’s hot and thirsty’ she walked over to him and goes ‘hi sir be happy it’s a nice day it’s not raining. Are you hot? Why don’t you go home the ground is dirty?'”
“He says I have no home but I will be ok. She looked at him with the saddest face and goes ‘so that means you’re homeless. So you have no food because you have no refrigerator.’ She gave him a few dollars out of her purse and her drink and said, ‘Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald’s you should go there.’
I could tell she made his day. On top of that 2 more people came up and gave money as well. We had a small conversation and he explained his trailer burnt down and he lost everything including his wife.”
“I felt for him. It just warms my heart. A 6 year old lead by example this morning. AWESOME! Kids see no color and that’s exactly how it should be. It’s not just a statement saying that the children are our future, it’s a FACT. That gives me a little more hope for the world.”
It’s amazing how compassionate our children are. They are naive and blind in their own beautiful ways. While many of us may judge others based on appearance, it’s beautiful to see a child’s perspective on a situation. We can all learn from this!
