When a homeless man burst into tears, six-year-old Janiyah Lewis came over and had a chat and some of her own dollars so she could get something to eat.
The friendly young man asked her mother if she could speak to him and she agreed. Janiyah’s mother, Kenyatta Lewis, was deeply moved by the events!
“After I left the store today, my daughter did something that really got me thinking,” Janiyah explained in an online post. “There was a guy sitting there crying and he asks me, ‘Did you see the man cry? ”
What’s wrong with him?” I said yes but I’m not sure maybe he’s just sad… She said, “maybe he’s hot and thirsty” she walked over to him and goes “hi sir be happy it’s a nice day it’s not raining. Are you hot? Why don’t you go home the ground is dirty?”‘
The homeless man explained that he had no home, and he tried to comfort the young girl by telling her that he will be okay.
“He says I have no home but I will be ok,” Kenyatta explained. “She looked at him with the saddest face and goes “so that means you’re homeless.
So you have no food because you have no refrigerator.” She gave him a few dollars out of her purse and her drink and said, “Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald’s you should go there. Janiyah’s mother could see that her daughter had helped to lift the spirits of the homeless man.
“I could tell she made his day. On top of that two more people came up and gave money as well. We had a small conversation and he explained his trailer burnt down and he lost everything including his wife.”Kenyatta was proud of her daughter’s pure heart and proud of how her daughter’s kindness and compassion saw beyond skin color.
“I felt for him. It just warms my heart. A 6-year-old lead by example this morning. AWESOME! Kids see no color and that’s exactly how it should be. It’s not just a statement saying that the children are our future, it’s a FACT. That gives me a little more hope for the world.”
the heart of a child is pure and full of love. Please this story with your friends and help inspire others to see how beautiful the world truly is. Showing Kindness Is Growing Kindness.
