Homeless Is Where The Heart Is, Part 4

, , , | Hopeless | July 4, 2016

(I am waiting at a very busy intersection, and traffic is slow, so I am forced to wait until I can go. There is a homeless man along the side of the road, and on the other side there is what looks like a husband and wife fighting. It starts off with just yelling, but quickly escalates to where the man shoves the lady down. She luckily lands on grass, not the concrete that is mere inches from her face. I’m just about ready to call the police when I see the man moving towards her. However, the homeless man crosses the street, weaving his way through the cars, and helps the woman up.)

Husband: “What are you doing, you d*** fool! This isn’t none of your business!”

(The homeless man doesn’t listen and continues to help the woman up.)

Wife: *quietly whispers what looks like thank you*

Homeless Man: *walks over, and gently places his hand the man’s shoulder* “What’s wrong?”

(At this point I expected the husband to tackle him, but instead he suddenly collapsed into the man’s arms, sobbing. As I later learned the man and woman were about to become homeless, and somehow this brave man recognized their distress. To that man, thank you for your kindness! And to the husband and wife, I wish you the best of luck getting back on your feet!)
