A Cop Saw This Boy Touching A Homeless Man. Then He Realized What He Was Doing
March 9, 2016
Eric Gaines, a police officer in Baltimore, shared a powerful message on Facebook after witnessing a young boy praying over a homeless man in downtown Baltimore.
"I watched as this young kid was walking pass, stopped and walked over to this sleeping homeless man; touched him and began praying over him," he wrote on Facebook. "This was an amazing sight! I pray this kid becomes a leader amongst his peers, and continues on this path!! Not all Baltimore youth are lost!! I HAD to post this!!"
Gaines said he believes the boy, who appeared to be 15 or 16, did this on his own because he "almost missed his bus while he was praying for the guy, which confirmed that he did it for no other reason than to pray for him."
Gaines said that he was happy the photo went viral because "people have preconceived notion of young men." He added, "Not all are lost. Some are doing wonderful things in the neighborhood and community and it's not getting the same publicity in the media."
