It is often said that a small gesture of kindness can change someone’s life forever. This is why we should always be kind to others because we do not know how this can affect their lives.
Robert Risdon had gone to get something to eat at Taco Bell in Mobile, Alabama, when he noticed the boys, aged 9 and 13, entering the country.
Risdon himself had two daughters and could not pass without noticing the condition of the boys. Both were very wet and were wearing old clothes. They were explaining to staff that they were selling homemade biscuits to raise money for the local church.
Risdon approached him immediately without thinking and asked if they had eaten anything during the day. Both told him they were very hungry. Risdon told her they could get whatever they wanted.
Jason Gibson one of the clients noticed this and decided to film it.
“I was at a taco bell tonight when two kids came in trying to sell homemade cakes for money.
“I heard a soldier ask the children if they were hungry and told them to follow him to the counter, he would buy them dinner. I had to video and distribute it. Our bodies always take care of us. Thank you LTC Robert Risdon Please distribute I heard the little one say that I want to be like you when I grow up and I greeted him. “
The boys were very grateful and started dancing while waiting for their food. Risdon talking to them saw that the boys needed something more than to fill their bellies.
After learning that a video of his meeting with those boys appeared on the Internet, this humble man said: “I am somewhat ashamed and humbled by the praise and I do not need it. I believe we live in the best place in the world with the best people and that acts of kindness happen every day. ”
This video shows how kind the military members are.
