I recently came upon a sociological experiment where a girl was dressed properly and left by herself on the streets. The majority of onlookers who noticed her stopped to inquire about her whereabouts and whether she required assistance. The same girl was still there, but she was now clothed in shabby, filthy clothes. Many people walked by her, but none seemed to pay any attention to her. And some who did nothing but glare angrily.
This is the depressing truth of the day. It makes me question when our world started to be populated with self-centered people who only evaluate others based on their appearance. Or, why is a rich person’s life more deserving than a poor person’s?
Fortunately, along the road, someone comes along who demonstrates that not everyone lost the ability to feel sympathy for the less fortunate, which gives us hope that not everything has been lost.
During her break from courses, Casey Fischer had planned to stop by Dunkin’ Donuts for a coffee when she spotted a homeless person collecting change by the side of the road. He then went inside with the intention of getting something to eat.
Fisher approached the man and saw that the change in his hand barely totaled $1. She then invited him to sit at her table and offered to pay for his coffee and bagel.
The man, who identified himself as Chris, told Fischer that he was frequently mistreated just because he was homeless.
He acknowledged that his drug usage had made him into the person he despised. He aspired to live a life that would make his late mother proud of him. yet in some way fell short of doing so.
Fischer informed Chris that she was happy to meet him and that she had to leave since it was time for her to return to class. The man then instructed her to wait while he wrote something on a piece of crumpled paper and delivered it to his new acquaintance.
When Fischer opened the note, she was overcome with emotion. She had no idea how much the homeless man would appreciate what she did for him. This meeting meant far more to him than simply catching up over coffee and a bagel. It caused a change in him.
The note stated, “I wanted to kill myself today.” “…because of u, I no longer do. Thank you, kind person.
We also like to thank this beautiful girl. You are the agent of change this world needs to function properly.
Please tell your family and friends about this.
