Generosity and Honesty

Posted on: Saturday, September 01, 2012 | , ,
I would like to say that this has been one of my favorites because the act in itself is not something that's too-good-to-be true. Here it goes:

What will the world look like if there's none at least one man possessing a generous heart? What will happen to me if there's not even a single person who will help me with my problems? These are few of those many questions which entered my mind yesterday as I was on my way home.

At the terminal, I encountered a man asking for help. He needs to purchase medications for someone with epilepsy, he even brought the prescription. Though I know that this could be one of those familiar modus-operandi that people use to fool others, I took the risk and gave something from my humble pocket. Why? Not because I want everybody to know that I am a nice person but because I felt his sincerity and honesty when he spoke his lines.

I also wondered if he was actually telling the truth how painful could it be that no one bothers to believe you- that no one even cared for you. Or if he wasn't then his conscience will take care of him. And what if someday I am placed in that same situation and asking and begging are my last resort- at least someone bothered to care.

I just really hope that people would become honest and sincere with everything they do, not playing around with others even if they could work and earn money on their own. Then it would be one wonderful place to live in.
