Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Miracle

--by lewski711, posted May 1, 2018
I saw a man who I thought might be struggling in the McDonald's parking lot. I got out of my car and asked if I could buy him a burger and fries.

He was stunned at first and said nothing. He shook his head as if he were dreaming and said, "Sure." I asked if he wanted a drink as well. He didn't say anything. I asked again, and he asked for a milk.

When I told him I'd be right back he started to smile. When I returned with his bag of food, he was delighted and said, "You are a walking miracle." (I've never been called a miracle before).

I fist bumped him and said I'd see him around.
