She noticed the homeless man only had about $1 in change in his hand, so she decided to buy him a coffee and bagel out of her own pocket. In doing so, she asked the man to sit down with her. He obliged. What happened next was life-changing. For both of them.
Recently, I’ve stumbled upon a social experiment in which a girl was nicely dressed and left alone by the sidewalk. Most of the passersby who saw her took their time to stop and ask her where her parents were and whether she needed help. That same girl was now dressed in worn and dirty clothes and left standing at the same place. A lot of people passed by her, but non seemed to notice her. And those who did, only stared with resentment.
This is the sad reality of today. It makes me wonder when did this world become a home of selfish humans who only judge others based on their looks. Or, how come that the life of a rich person is worthier than that of the poor?
