There’s a stage in our development as human beings when we start to see “differences”, for want of a better description.
Colour; race; cultural and religious beliefs; sexual preferences.
There’s no real set age for it – it can happen at any time, with no apparent singular reason for it happening when it does.
For the majority of people, we celebrate these “differences” as simply being another part of the wonderful fabric that is being human.
For some, sadly, it equates to hate. fear and ignorance.
Thankfully, for children, this isn’t the case.
They don’t really see differences, as such – they simply see a human being.
Like the six-year-old daughter of Kenyatta Lewis, of Norfolk, Virginia.
After seeing a man sitting outside a store they’d been in, Kenyatta’s daughter asked her mum if she’d seen the man was crying.
After her mum nodded, her daughter approached the man to ask if he was okay.
The man shook his head and replied that he had no home, but he’d be okay.
This is when Kenyatta’s daughter showed the true meaning of humanity, and an unselfish, Unfucd mindset. From Kenyatta’s Facebook post:
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.”
After doing this, the mother and daughter struck up a conversation with the man, and found out his trailer had burned down, and he had lost everything in the fire – including his wife.
Following the little girl’s actions, more people came up and gave to the man sitting on the street.
While it won’t take away his pain, it shows that with love for each other, kindness in our hearts, and a simple desire to help our fellow brothers and sisters, we can help make a moment a precious one.
And for that single moment, that’s all that truly matters.
