Stories of Kindness from Around the World

What I Overheard

--by lewski711, posted May 22, 2015
I saw a man who looked like he was really down on his luck today, and another man walked up and said, "How you doing? Are you hungry?"

He responded, "Yeah, kind of."

"Can I get you a sandwich in the store?" asked the other man.

I didn't want to stand there and stare. I continued to walk, and didn't hear any more, but I thought the act was very kind! #AprilRAoK

I learned a lot though and my giving took different forms after that...............I hope she went home......sometimes mental health problems can be difficult to cope with for the sufferer and the carers and breaks can result but they should not be allowed to go on for too long...........if you can go home you should go home x
