The teen reached his hand over to touch the man lying on the ground. What he did next completely BLEW him away!!
With the negative press surrounding the devastation of the Baltimore riots since last year, it’s quite refreshing to see that “not all Baltimore youth are lost,” as one Facebook user describes.
When walking down the streets of Baltimore last week, a man named Jonathan A. Stormz captured an incredible act by the young man featured in the photo below. While many in this rough area may be inclined to take advantage of a homeless person in a vulnerable situation, this teen did quite the opposite.
Instead, he bent over, bowed his head, and began to pray.
The touching photo has been shared tens of thousands of times, as Jonathan’s message has continued to inspire countless people across the web.
I love how one single picture can capture such a compelling message of hope, humanity, and God’s goodnessall at once.
Like Jonathan, I hope we continue to see more young people demonstrate such admirable leadership for their friends through the power of prayer and good ol’ fashion compassion. This certainly warmed my heart todayand I hope it gave yours the warm ‘n’ fuzzies too!
