Thanks to a young boy with a big heart, a homeless man was spared an empty stomach.
Ava Faulk was in a Prattville, Alabama Waffle House with her 5-year-old son, Josiah Duncan, when the boy began asking questions about a crudely-dressed man who walked in, the Huffington Post reports.
Faulk told Josiah the man was homeless and Josiah was distraught to learn this meant he didn't have any food.
Josiah begged his mother to buy the man a meal and she agreed.
Faulk told WFSA,
He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him. So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can't order without one.
The homeless man asked for a simple burger with bacon, but Faulk quickly interjected and told him he could have whatever he wanted.
Josiah stood next to him after he received the food and sang a prayer as loud as he could.
Faulk described what happened next, saying,
The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried.
She said her son's actions that day made for one of the proudest moments of her life.
