At only 5 years old, Josiah Duncan is teaching what it means to show compassion.
After the food arrived, Josiah did one more thing...he blessed the man with a song, "God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen."
By the time Josiah was finished, there wasn’t a dry eye in the restaurant.
News outlets and commentators on social media are right to praise this little boy. After all, Josiah didn’t just empathize with the man he saw outside the Waffle House – he was moved to action.
But I also think Josiah’s mom deserves to be recognized. She took her son’s request seriously and empowered him to act. Despite the fact she’s raising her son in a culture that is becoming more individualized and calloused, Josiah was able to feel – and act out – compassion.
