Woman shares selfies after touching act of kindness and 'revolution' in honor of homeless man

‘On the way to grab a water, I saw a homeless man sitting, red-faced and shaky. ‘Are you OK?’: Woman defends homeless man in ‘convenience store revolution’

“I grabbed two waters. The lady in front of me turned around, hands on hips, and told me I was enabling that ‘homeless person’ (with a sneer) and I shouldn’t be wasting my money on him. She proceeded to tell me I should be ashamed, that it should be illegal to beg for money and illegal to give money. I may have inadvertently started a revolution in the convenience store today.”

‘You’re awkward around me. You keep away. You used to know me as so and so’s wife. But now I’m just a so and so.’: Newly divorced woman urges friends ‘treat me like a person still’

“I’m not diseased. I’m not to be pitied or swept under a rug. I’m not broken. It takes two to make a relationship and two to break it. And two hearts to break even more when people pick sides. If you ever find yourself in my shoes (and I pray you never do), I hope no one treats you like this.”

‘The teacher said, ‘Your son is unteachable. He is the most autistic child in the group.’ It wasn’t true. He just needed someone to care.’: Special needs mom pulls son out of school after neglect, ‘He now gleefully puts on his backpack’

“They lost my son due to lack of supervision. When he was having a hard time, they placed him in a corner and punished him by not allowing him to do fun group activities. They simply didn’t want to be bothered. After only two months, I pulled my son out of Kindergarten. He just needed someone to care.”

‘A gentleman stopped me as I headed for the doors. ‘Go get it.’ He filled my hands with a giant palmful of cash and pointed to a huge, fancy tree.’: Woman recalls powerful act of kindness during Christmas season

“I stood there, speechless. Then he said something that shook me to my soul: ‘If my daughter was still here with us, I’d do the same for her.’ I sat in my car and cried tears of gratitude. Never would he know what this actually meant to me.”
