On this dark and dreary Monday I was shown kindness from the last person I ever thought could be a beacon of hope. The smallest action of humility was an inspiration of how selfless I aim to be. I now hold the responsibility to keep the momentum going.

Last night I was at the gas station finding myself in line behind an old man holding a handful of change. He didn’t know how much change he had until he arrived at the register. The woman behind the register asked, “$6.21 on pump 1?” he looked surprised but quickly saddened by how little of an amount was accounted for, he then nodded as he braced himself to enter the cold. When he left I knew that his gas guzzling car would not get that far in this freezing weather. I told the lady to add an even amount to his pump while I was buying my things.
There’s a good possibility that I will never see this man again but all of that doesn’t matter. If someone is in need help them out and just go on with your life.
