A Little Faith Restored in Humanity

HUMANS & HUMANITY

The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie. The woman in the red coat noticed, and asked ‘Do you know how to tie it properly?’ The young guy said ‘No ma’am.’ She taps her husband and says ‘Come to this side [her right side; he was standing on her left side] and teach this young man how to tie his tie.” The older gentleman moved without hesitation [almost a reflex response] and gave him a step-by-step tutorial; then – afterward – the elder gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it. I was some distance away (but close enough to hear the exchange), and got even closer to snap this candid photo of the tutorial in progress before hopping on the train.

83 Year Old John Joyce

An 83-year-old John Joyce makes money mowing lawns. His 20-year-old truck died so he’d been pushing his lawnmower several miles just to get to each house. One of his customers started a GoFundMe page earlier this month raised $13,000 for a new truck and had enough money left over to pay for the insurance and buy him a new lawnmower.

#BeAwesomeToSomebody (post from Frank Somerville KTVU)

I love these pictures and I love this story.
The guy in the baseball cap is Mark Bustos.
He cuts hair at an upscale salon in New York.
Prices start at around $125.

But on Sundays, he walks around the New York and gives free haircuts to the homeless.

He has a special way that he approaches them:

“I’ll sit on the sidewalk on the ground with them, sit eye-to-eye and speak with them like a human being, just tell them I want to do something nice for them.”

He then cuts their hair, right there on the street.

The first guy is Joe.
Here’s how Mark described him:

“When I first approached Joe, 40, he was banging the back of his head against the wall.
He told me he felt like a ‘dead corpse.’”

Now look at him in the second picture.
He looks like a model.
He’s what Mark said about him afterword:

“After the haircut and some kind words and love, I felt like I gave him a little bit of hope.
He told me he no longer felt like a dead corpse.”

The second set of pictures shows a guy named Zack.
Here’s what Mark said about him:

“Found Zack, 23, in Union Square with his hair down past his shoulders, a cardboard sign and a cup of change.
He told me it has been a few years since his last haircut.
(His hair) was matted and tangled and took quite some time to comb through.”

As they were talking Mark says Zack also told him about the only girl he ever fell in love with.
(You’ll see why that is important in a second)

After getting the haircut Zack was like a different person
Here’s what he said to Mark:

“I feel so great, not just physically, but emotionally…
Can you take a photo of me with your phone so I can send it to that girl I was telling you about?”

One of my favorite quotes is this:

“How you make others feel about themselves, says a lot about you.”

I think Mark Bustos is a perfect example of that.

In fact, I think his hashtag on Instagram says it all:
#BeAwesomeToSombody
