You won’t believe what this adorable little girl does with her food at a diner
Compassion!! It is a huge word and all because it is extremely hard to put into practice. While we may show compassion among friends and family members, how compassionate can we be when it involves a homeless or hungry stranger living on the street? Now while many of us do drop a few coins into the hands of a man seeking alms, how many would be willing to share a meal from the diner with the poor?. Well while we do have the Mother Teresas of the world who teach us compassion, there are other little teachers of compassion that turn up at unexpected quarters. That is innocent little children who know much more than you or me when it comes to practicing this big big word.
Take a look at the video at the end of this article. This little girl shares her food with a stranger and the reaction of her face is the biggest example of what compassion looks like today.
1 She gets served a big plate of food at a diner
When this little Ella from California is served her dish at a diner, all you hear is one sentence. “Can I give it to him”. Her father Eddie Scott replies ‘yes, go’. That’s when the most incredible thing happens. You may find it hard to believe that a little girl this small can actually perform an act of compassion which you and I would never have even contemplated on.
2 A True Face of Compassion
When this little girl shares her food with a stranger outside her diner. It isn’t so much the act of sharing her food that hits you right in the face. Take a long hard look at the Ella’s emotional expression after her act of kindness. That is the face of compassion. That is the face of one humbled by her own actions due to the sympathy and empathy for a poor man on the street. She isn’t proud of herself like many flaunt their social services, she experiences true compassion and that is what makes her content.
Her feelings are summed up even in her response to her father asking her ‘how do you feel’ and her reply??? A simple “I lIKE IT”. I’m sure you will agree with her father who says “You are Amazing”
