While leaving a store with her daughter, Kenyatta Lewis witnessed something powerful. Her daughter noticed that the man was crying and asked her mother what was wrong with him. She told her daughter that maybe the man was just sad and having a bad day.
And that’s when Kenyatta realized that her daughter knew what it meant to be human.
Th 6-year-old girl told her mom that he was probably hot and thirsty. The child walked up to the man and took his hand and her mother will never forget the words that came out of her daughter’s mouth.
Hi sir! Be happy. It’s a nice day and it’s not raining. Are you hot? Why don’t you go home, the ground is dirty.”
The man told her that he didn’t have a home, but that he would be okay. Her face was instantly full of sadness for the man.
So, that means you’re homeless. So, you have no food because you have no refrigerator.” She pulled the money that she had saved in her purse and gave them to the man, along with the drink that her mother had purchased on their way out of the store. “Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald’s, you should go there.”
Two more people saw the exchange and stopped to give this man a few dollars as well. He explained that his trailer burned down and he lost everything, including his wife, in the fire. Kids don’t see color or wealth or status. Kids see people, and they give us all hope for the future.
