Five Year-Old's Response To Seeing A Homeless Man Moves Restaurant Diners To Tears

May 19, 2015

A five-year-old boy in Prattville, Alabama, saw a homeless man for the first time and his actions moved restaurant diners to tears.

Josiah was confused by the man's appearance and started peppering his mom with questions.

"He's homeless," his mother, Ava, explained. "What does that mean?" he responded. "And I said, 'Well, that means he doesn't have a home.'"

He insisted on his mom buying the stranger dinner. She listened, and then obliged.

Before the man could take his first bite, Josiah insisted on saying a prayer first. And he did, publicly, with 11 other customers watching. Josiah sang the blessing as loud as his little voice could muster.

"The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried," Ava said.

"Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I'll ever get to witness," Ava wrote in an email to WSFA 12 News.

"You never know who the angel on Earth is, and when the opportunity comes you should never walk away from it," she added.
