A Little Act of Kindness




The sight was something usually unforeseen in a first world country like US. A man, shoulders hunched up while pushing a cart full of assorted stuff was obviously fighting the vicious wind and bone chilling temperature outside. My husband told me he’s homeless and whatever’s in the cart was everything he has. 

I looked at him with disbelief in my eyes. How does he survive out there during this winter? The car was in the busy road and there was no way we could stop immediately, but my husband suddenly asked if it would be fine to buy a meal for him. There were no words after that only a silent understanding because we were both emotional.


It took us a while before we were finally able to go back and the man was not in the spot where we last saw him but his cart was right in front of Arby’s. My husband went inside and it took him a while before he was back. The look on his face was enough to make us both teary-eyed. He got a simple meal and gave him a small amount of money. It may not be much but my husband told me how it made the man so emotional. Apparently, Arby’s took pity on him and allowed him to sit inside to warm himself. After he got the meal, my husband sat and talked with him for a while. 


Sometimes it takes a little act of kindness in order to help someone. My husband and I went through a lot of ordeal getting our stuff together and had it not been for people who gave us a little act of kindness, we would’ve not been able to pull through. For some people, it may be nothing but what may be small is actually a colossal act of mercy making a big difference.

  10. It's important to remember that not everyone has resources and family or friends to fall back on. It doesn't cost much to be kind, and your act of kindness made that man's day (or week or month).

  12. Being kind to people that aren't as lucky as us is normal behavior, and it meant a lot to that man, Usually I try to help out the homeless people around my city when I can and it means a lot to them when you sit down with them and talk with them, acknowledge them as a human being, and help them out.

  13. Be kind always and to everyone. We never know what people are going through because it's not always this visible.

  14. We should be kind towards everyone but somewhere we are losing it. I see people's behaviour is changing. We need people just like you who are humble and have condescending heart.
