The Hungry Kid

Good morning and happy hump day boys and girls. I hope that you enjoy your day to the fullest, and that you don’t take your meals for granted. I remember that when I was a kid, and didn’t want to eat what my mother cooked, she reminded me, that there were children going hungry in other countries. As a matter of fact, for the past few months, I’ve found myself saying the same thing to others.

As for me? Yesterday on my way home from the salt mines, while waiting on the train station platform, out of all the people there, a 13 to 14 years old kid approached me, and asked me for a dollar to buy something to eat. I didn’t think twice, before reaching into my pocket and giving him my last two dollars. He said thank you and walked away. The kid had his hair cut, was clean and had a backpack, as a matter of fact, he looked like a school kid. He didn’t look like a street kid or a drug addict.

As he walked away, the only thing that I hoped was, that whatever it is, that is going on in his life, he gets through it. I wished that I could have given him more money, but that was all that I had on me. Even as I wrote this post, I couldn’t stop thinking about him.

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!
