"Today, I was giving away a few KFC meals and drinks to the homeless people in the streets right after iftar.. I spotted a small (really thin) kid with a washcloth cleaning cars so I called him and gave him one of the meals.. he smiled at me took the meal and hid it in a black plastic bag, I was curious to why he did this .. the kid looked so thin he must be starving. I pretended I was leaving but parked the car just a few meters from where I saw him and waited to see what he was going to do with the meal. He left the meal for about two minutes and then returned with two boys of his age and a girl who shared the meal together. I thought he was going to sell the meal as soon as he wrapped the black plastic bag around it but I was wrong. I watched the kids share the meal and all of them were smiling and happy (at least for a few moments). I just stayed still in the car and imagined myself in this situation.. If I was handed that meal under those circumstances I wouldn’t even think twice before eating it. Society would think that i’m better than that kid because I’m educated, dress nicely and mainly because I have money but as a person and that’s what really matters I wouldn’t even compete with this kid. This kid is my role model now and I will always look up to him. If you just want to instantly feel better about yourself help other people.. that’s what life is all about ~"
