One might think that the biggest difference between those who are homeless and those who are not would be the fact that one has a house and the other doesn’t. This couldn’t be farthest from the truth. In this video, you will see that the biggest difference between the two is their hearts.
A college group decided to test the theory by having a decently dressed white male approach regular people who were eating in public and asking them if they could share their food with him. There wasn’t one person willing to share their food, and as a matter of fact, they took offense that he even dared ask. He was cursed out, hurried away, and often ignored by regular people when he asked for them to share their food with him. Even though he claimed to be hungry, they still ignored him.
After the test run of what regular people would do if they had to share their food with a stranger in public, the group decided it was time to see how homeless people would react if someone asked to share food they had. The group gave one homeless man a box of pizza that had only a few slices left. When they walked away, the guy who asked for food approached the homeless man 30 minutes later. When he asked if he could have some of the homeless man’s food because he was hungry, the homeless man gave him a slice without even thinking about it. It was incredibly touching to watch. After the young man ate the slice of pizza that the homeless man had given him, he got up and then thanked the homeless man with cash. Upon receiving the money, the homeless man began to cry.
This video is a testament to how some people who have the basic necessities of life become rigid and selfish when it comes to sharing with others. Yet, you have some homeless people who have nothing but will still share their last with a total stranger. It’s not about the person, but rather about their heart. Watch this video and see if it will encourage you to do something for someone else who is in need. You never know…you just might be getting filmed in the process.
