World Wrestling Entertainment star, Titus O’Neil, decided to treat a group of homeless people to a nice meal at a restaurant one weekend in San Diego. These people had been living on the streets for a while, and he hoped they would appreciate the gesture. A hot meal, good conversation, and a chance to relax? It sounded wonderful…until they received a cold reception at the restaurant.
I’m not the richest man in the world, but money, fame and status have never held me bondage, because at the end of the day, I’ve gone without before and God has always provided for me. Now I have the opportunity to do the exact thing that others did for me when I had nothing to give them in return….LOVE OTHERS!!!” He wrote.
He knew what it felt like to go days without eating. His own family life growing up was a struggle, and he now takes the opportunity to do good for the homeless he comes across.
His solution? He went back to that same restaurant with even more homeless people and decided to send a message. He didn’t want to shame that specific restaurant, but instead use the experience to remind everyone that just because it hasn’t happened to you doesn’t mean it won’t.
We’re all one situation away from having our lives turned upside down whether it be via health issues, a loss of a loved one or becoming homeless,” he said. “We all are people that can and will deal with struggles of all sorts and its up to those that understand this to continue to bring light to the places and issues that are deemed dark.”
Above all else, he hopes that people will stop looking down on one another and instead start helping in any way that they can.
