The Vet with the most genuine smile!

I worked in Orlando and during my lunch break I would walk. One day I met this homeless man who was a Vet and lost both of legs below the knee. Someone would give him a ride every day and he would sit in his wheelchair with an old white painter’s bucket with a few roses in it. He had the most genuine smile and would greet the passers by with a sunny hello but unfortunately most would not even acknowledge that he even existed. He was the bright spot of my afternoon walk and he would just beam when he saw me coming. Most days I would buy a rose but on days when I couldn’t, it didn’t matter, he just wanted human contact like all of us. Being considerate and kind does not cost you anything but it could brighten someone’s day. – Debbie
