This young boy’s small act of kindness has touched countless others after it went viral online.
Sometimes one simple act can make an unexpectedly powerful impact on others.
Five-year-old Josiah Duncan and his mother were enjoying a trip to their local Prattville, Alabama Waffle House when Duncan saw something he didn’t quite understand. He asked his mother about a homeless man who had come into the restaurant, but had not been served. His mother explained his situation, and Josiah asked her if she would buy him a meal. She agreed, and Josiah sprung into action by hand-delivering a menu to the man and telling him he could order anything his heart desired.
When the man’s food came, Josiah told the man that he needed to help him say a blessing before he could eat. When the little boy said the blessing aloud at the top of his lungs, everyone in the restaurant was moved to tears.
His mother was inspired by the kindness and thoughtfulness that came from her young son. Josiah’s story has spread across the internet and inspired many other small acts of kindness from others. This young boy’s selfless act is a good reminder to pay it forward and to look out for others who may be in need.
