You’re never too young to make a difference in someone’s life.

Josiah Duncan, 5, had a lot of questions for his mother when he spotted a hungry, homeless man at a Waffle House near Prattville, Alabama. His mother, Ava Faulk, had to explain the man didn’t have a home.

“[The homeless man] came in and sat down [at Waffle House], and nobody really waited on him,” Faulk said. “So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can’t order without one.”

The 5-year-old asked his mom to buy the man food. Faulk recalls that the man asked for bacon, and she told him to get as much bacon as he wanted.

Before eating, Josiah and the man held hands and said grace — at Josiah’s request.

“That man just cried and everyone in Waffle House was crying,” Faulk said. [via]
