Below is what young man by name, Ichie Agbalanza shared on Facebook..read,its very interesting!
“I was on my way to catch up an appointment this afternoon when I saw this homeless mother by the market roadside begging alms… I noticed how everybody ignored her pleas for alms and I hid behind a tree to record this video.
Brothers and Sisters ignored her like she’s a log of wood lying beside the road, no one gave her even a smile to pacify her soul… Pain and agony was written all over her as she continued regardless.
I went down to the market and bought few stuffs and I came back to meet her… I handed the stuffs over to her and I could read the excitement and cheers in her face as she kept saying things in her language which I don’t understand. She opened what I bought for her and offered me some of it to eat with her, I ate with her as we took selfies and she laughed so hatd whenever I showed her a picture of herself, I decided to sit back with her and beg for alms.
We started begging for alms together and she was all smiles… People couldn’t understand what was happening as I walked towards them and ask them to drop a penny for the old lady… It was crazy, it was fun and almost everyone I walked up dropped something in her plate, I spent almost an hour with her and I missed my appointment… But the Joy I gave and the Joy I received was way more important.
I counted the money we made and it was N1,200 (One Thousand Two Hundred Naira) I handed it over to her and bade her goodbye as she was left with all smiles and thanks. It was a moment to behold…that’s why am sharing this one with you.
Just a little more love can heal the world.
Moral of the story: Am I not mad?
