July 23, 2016
6-year-old Janiyah Lewis was leaving a store with her mom in Norfolk, Virginia, and noticed a man crying.
Without hesitating, she walked up to the stranger and said, "Hi sir, be happy, it's a nice day and it's not raining."

Janiyah's mother was so inspired by what her daughter did next, she shared the story on Facebook:
"After leaving out of the store today my daughter did something that really made me stop and think. There was this guy sitting there crying and she asks me 'did you see that man crying? What's wrong with him?' I said yes but I'm not sure maybe he's just sad... She said, 'maybe he's hot and thirsty' she walked over to him and goes 'hi sir be happy it's a nice day it's not raining. Are you hot ? Why don't you go home the ground is dirty?' He says I have no home but I will be ok. She looked at him with the saddest face and goes "so that means you're homeless. So you have no food because you have no refrigerator." She gave him a few dollars out of her purse and her drink and said, 'Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald's you should go there.' I could tell she made his day. On top of that, 2 more people came up and gave money as well. We had a small conversation and he explained his trailer burnt down and he lost everything including his wife. I felt for him. It just warms my heart. A 6 year old lead by example this morning. AWESOME! Kids see no color and that's exactly how it should be. It's not just a statement saying that the children are our future, it's a FACT. That gives me a little more hope for the world."
Many people are homeless, not because they're lazy and don't want to work, but because they have had horrible things happen to them. We can all learn compassion from this little girl and her huge heart.
