The other day I was at the mall having lunch with my family, I usually have my baby’s stroller next to the table and give my baby something to play with while I eat, people usually come and comment on how cute the baby is. So that day I was sitting waiting for everyone to finish eating so we can finish our shopping, I see a guy from far away limping with a walking aid, approaching the stroller, he appeared to have some kind of down syndrome, so naturally with my mother instinct I got worried, then I see that he left his walking aid and pushed the stroller aside, and he said something I was not able to understand. I was trying to assume the best and not over react, as I try my best to be kind to all those around me and not cause a seen. So after he pushed the stroller he knelt down to the ground and picked up my baby’s pack of Heinz that I have given her earlier to play with, he picked it up thanked me and even gave me a sticker that said “ Thank you for making a difference in our community” he also asked me to stick it right away on the stroller.
He left me baffled, surprised, embarrassed and captivated by the kindness and purity of this mans heart, I wanted to run after him and thank him for making a difference in the community and tell him if the world had more people like him not me the world would be a much much better place. It is such an exquisite thing to meet people like him, someone who was probably constantly judged and mistreated to be so kind and courteous. Until this day, more than a week later I am still in awe because of that mans action.
Wouldn’t you want to be a person that has an impact like that on people, wouldn’t you want to be an inspiring person that captivates peoples hearts silently with just a simple act of kindness. Wouldn’t you want to live in a world where everyone cares about each other, kind to one another and hearts that are purified with no resentments. It is a wonderful world that he is in, it is a wonderful world because people like him exist.
