This experience was shared with me on Facebook--- by a stranger who felt "inspired" by reaching out---with love--to help an older man who was apparently-alone---and hungry. I hope you will read this brief encounter and also feel "inspired."

"I was at McDonald's in Poughkeepsie, NY tonight around 10:30PM getting my daughter some fries and a milkshake when I noticed the guy sitting on the ground-- next to his bike. I kinda had a feeling he wanted to get food but couldn't(no car, lobby closed) so I offered to go around the drive-thru to get some food for him.

He pulled out a crumpled up coupon for a BOGO Big Mac and was struggling to get all the money together so I volunteered to buy his meal.

The sad thing is-- prior to that--I watched car after car pass him right by. And I thought to myself, that must be a terrible experience watching the world pass right by you--- and never pay you any attention---- like you don't even exist..

It made me realize this world goes by so fast that sometimes we forget the simple and basic good human qualities that we all possess-- like empathy, humility, compassion and more importantly---generosity.

So please if you're going to get anything out of this post. Be kind to others because one day you could be the one sitting on a curb next to your bike, starving,  and have the world pass you right-by--- just as you did to others.”


Dare to reach-out and help others.  Dare to share your love to those who so-desperately need it.

Lol, I loved reading this story! As a female that dated a couple men with Harleys, I totally understand and met Harley Guy myself, many times over!
I hope you get your 3wheels someday soon!
