When little Josiah Duncan’s mother told her boy that the disheveled man outside a Waffle House in Prattville, Alabama, was homeless, the 5-year-old wouldn’t stop asking questions.
“What does that mean? Where is his house? Where is his family? Where does he keep his groceries?” Josiah was full of questions, but his most important concern was the stranger’s lack of food.
So he begged his mom, Ava Faulk, to buy the homeless man a meal at the resturant. And she agreed.
But when the man sat down at a table, none of the staff approached him or gave him a menu. So Josiah took matters into his own hands. He handed the man a menu saying “you can’t order without one”, and told him to get anything he wanted.
But before the homeless man could tuck into his burger (with extra bacon), Josiah insisted on singing a blessing. The young Alabama boy sung at the top of his tiny lungs, and brought the man — as well as all the other diners at the Waffle House — to tears.
It was a moment Ava said she would never forget: “Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I’ll ever get to witness.”
