Everyone, affluent or poor, deserves to be treated with kindness and humanity. Michael Rivers, who resides in North Carolina, USA, lives by this life concept. He is employed as a police officer. While traveling around his area one day, he noticed a homeless woman sitting by the road. And the wording on her T-shirt inspired him to strike up a conversation with her.
“Becoming homeless is the quickest way to become a nobody,” read the T-shirt of a homeless lady.
Michael approached her and inquired whether she had eaten today, to which she replied, “No.”
The man then walked to the nearby restaurant, ordered food, and sat down next to her for lunch. Michelle, it turns out, is the name of the homeless woman. They sat together for nearly an hour, according to Michael, during which time they managed to converse heart to heart. Michelle has a homeless husband and two children: a 23-year-old son and a sick 12-year-old daughter who is presently living in a foster household.
Passers-by casually snapped at these individuals enjoying supper on the street.
Michelle and Michael later divorced. And the man confesses that he realized a lot and that he even resembled this woman in certain ways. The homeless are frequently overlooked by society, despite the fact that many of them did not become such on their own. And the police are viewed as ruthless and heartless, despite the fact that they all choose this career to protect people rather than simply lock them up.
Let us not condemn others based on their looks or social class, but rather treat everyone with kindness and humanity.
