A 5-year-old Alabama boy moved diners at a Waffle House to tears when he begged his mother to buy a homeless man dinner and then sang a heartfelt blessing before the meal. Josiah Duncan spotted the slovenly looking man outside the restaurant in Prattville and started asking his mom a lot of questions: “Where is his house?” “Where is his family?” “Why is he homeless”
Josiah convinced his mother to offer to buy the man dinner and when he sat down at a table and nobody waited on him, the boy jumped up and got him a menu. The man ordered the least expensive burger and Josiah pushed him to get the works. Josiah’s mother, Ava Faulk, told WBTV that Josiah told him he could get as much bacon as he wants.
After the burger arrived, Josiah insisted on singing a blessing and he belted out in song as loud as he possibly could. “God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen.” Eleven other diners witnessed the scene and Ava told WBTV there was hardly a dry eye in the house. “Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I’ll ever get to witness,” Faulk said in an email to WBTV.
