Never underestimate the kindness of strangers. A 5-year-old
boy is helping to restore faith in humanity when he insisted that his mother
buy a homeless man a meal.
Josiah Duncan and his mother, Ava Faulk, were at their local
Waffle House in Prattville, Alabama, when they saw a homeless man outside the
building. Duncan had many questions for his mom once he spotted the man, but he
was most concerned about one thing.
"He didn't have any food," Duncan said to his mom, who then relayed the story to WAFF 48.
Once it was explained that they wanted to buy his food, the
homeless man tried to order a basic burger. However, he got the works once
Faulk assured him that he could have whatever he wanted.
Duncan had one more request before the man could enjoy his
meal. The young boy wanted the man to join him in prayer. Duncan sang a
blessing as loudly as he could in front of the 11 other customers in the Waffle
"The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried," Faulk said.
They left the man to eat his meal in peace, and he left soon
after he finished. Faulk's pride in her son's actions is evident. His
insistence that she pay for a homeless man's meal hopefully left a lasting impression
on all the patrons in the Waffle House.
"Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House
tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I'll
ever get to witness," Faulk said.
