Everyone need kindness and some more than others
Well as it was Easter I asked “if these two men were my uncles or brother what would I do?” I decided to go and to talk to them and give, yes give them with full knowledge that the money might not be well spent, give them 20$ each. As I talked with Elder West Scott and Morris GoodRider I remembered while giving West a hug and holding his hand as he walked me to the train station that this man had lived a life, but due to issues beyond his control he lived on the street and no longer had a mother or family to take him in and to help him. To see tears in an old man’s eyes when he a received a gift of twenty dollars was quite an emotional moment. During the time we talked for 10 or so minutes West and Morris became my friends and if I see them again in Calgary I will not turn them away, because they are my brothers, my kin.
