“I was at McDonald’s in Poughkeepsie, NY tonight around 10:30 getting the girl some fries and a milkshake when I noticed the guy sitting down next to his bike.”
“I kinda had a feeling he wanted to get food but couldn’t, (no car, lobby closed) so I offered to go around the drive-thru for him. He pulled out a crumpled up coupon for a BOGO Big Mac and was struggling to get all the money together so I offered to buy his meal.”
“The sad thing is prior to that, we watched car after car pass him right by. And I thought to myself, that must be a terrible experience watching the world go right by you like that and not pay you any attention, like you don’t even exist.”
“It made me realize this world goes by so fast that sometimes we forget the simple and basic good human qualities that we all possess like empathy, humility, compassion and more importantly, generosity.”
So please if you’re going to get anything out of this post, be kind to others because one day you could be the one sitting on a curb next to your bike, starving with the world passing you by.”
