Watch What Happens To This Homeless Blind Man After Everyone Walks Right Past Him

There’s no denying that homelessness is a huge issue plaguing the United States. About 700,000 Americans are facing the reality of homelessness every single day, and this includes children. Some of these homeless people are disabled, too, which only adds to their difficulties.

Many of us accept this as inevitable and decide there’s nothing we can do to improve conditions for the people coping with this way of living, so we don’t even stop to give anybody our assistance when we pass homeless folks on the street. We ignore them and keep moving, believing that this is just how the world is.

Oftentimes, all a homeless person needs is a little bit of time, compassion, and support. Below is an amazing video featuring a homeless blind man. His sign reads, “I’m blind, please help.” Plenty of people pass him by, and hardly any stop to lend a helping hand. Then, a woman picks up his sign and starts to write on it. When she leaves, the man begins receiving much more help than he was before. She returns at the end of the day to see the man again, and you’re going to be so touched when she reveals to him what she did to help him out!

So much can change if we stop to help the people around us. The world could use some more compassion, and this woman was kind enough to take time out of her day and help illustrate that point through this short film. It’s truly incredible what can come out of a little love towards strangers in need! The film serves as an homage to Historia de un letrero, The Story of a Sign by Alonso Alvarez Barreda.
