Kindness, giving food to the homeless, you’ll gain more than they will.

Today I stepped over a barrier. It felt frightening but I decided to do it anyway. I went into MacDonald’s and bought 5 bacon rolls. Walked through the Stratford centre and gave them to various homeless people. The gratitude was overwhelming, for the first time I felt a real connection with people I know nothing about, a world that was so far from my own. They were above all, human, just like me.  That experience cost me £10, they may remember the bacon roll for a couple of days, it is a memory that will last me a life time.
