”I have no home but I’ll be okay” Kenyatta Lewis posted this about her daughter meeting a man who was homeless.
It’s the kind of story that always makes me smile.Here’s what she wrote:
After leaving a store today my daughter did something that 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 two 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.—
