After reading this article it made me think: who would really do this? A teenager is trying to rob me, my first thought is just don't make him mad. Don't let them cut me with that knife. But no, this guy also gave him his coat because the teenager looked cold, then he invited him to go eat dinner with him as well! Just because he kinda knew that kid was bad off, I mean he's robbing people probably not because he is loaded, but because he needs money for food, or just to get by. After having dinner, and making small talk with the guy, the guy gets his wallet back, gives the guy his coat, and a $20 bill, but in return asked for the knife.
Think about this.....would you really do this if you were in this situation? Honestly? I don't think I could. But If we were willing to give things of ours to those who don't have as much as we do, or in general, just be nice to everyone. I know its kind of hard, but honestly instead of giving people who don't look like us, or look like they have a lot, dirty looks, maybe shoot them a smile, or a friendly hi. You may never know what something that small can do to someone. It could change their day from really crappy to really awesome.
