It's not ALL just about how much of a difference you made in that man's life. It's also about what it did to you, in YOUR life. These actions
definite who we are. OK maybe THIS time you didn't "save the world", but it's the fact that you're the type of person who would, given the
chance. And you're going to be a lot better off having lived your life this way. When your time comes, you will die knowing you did what you could
with what you had, where you were. And one of these times, you will make a big difference to somebody or to your community or the world. And who's
to say you haven't already? Who's to say you didn't make a big difference by helping that man? Maybe now he will feel grateful for it and have a
moment where he realizes he needs to call his daughter and tell her he loves her and he's sorry he became homeless and wasn't a perfect father, and
that talk could give her the closure she needed in a situation that was haunting her so now she will have the fortitude to finish high school and go
on to college to do great things whereas before she felt like she had a hole in her life. Or any other number of scenarios that can only come about
through random acts of kindness.
Hey, don't kid yourself here. No matter what happens, at the end of the day, you matter! And what's more, your soul, your essence, your
"you"-ness, is priceless beyond any perceivable value.
