    uplifting story

    Here's a very touching story I thought you might find uplifting.

    Several weekends ago, I was rushing around trying to do some
    Valentine's Day shopping. I was stressed out and not thinking very
    fondly of the weather right then. It was dark, cold, and wet in the
    parking lot. As I was loading my car up, I noticed that I was missing
    a receipt that I might need later. So mumbling under my breath, I
    retraced my steps to the mall entrance. As I was searching the wet
    pavement for the lost receipt, I heard a quiet sobbing.

    The crying was coming from a poorly dressed boy about 12 years old.
    He was short and thin. He had no coat. He was just wearing a ragged
    flannel shirt to protect him from the cold night's chill.

    Oddly enough, he was holding a hundred dollar bill in his hand.
    Thinking that he had gotten lost from his parents, I asked him what
    was wrong. He told me his sad story:

    He said that he came from a large family. He had three brothers and
    four sisters. His father had died when he was nine years old.

    His mother was poorly educated and worked two full time jobs. She
    made very little to support her large family. Nevertheless, she had
    managed to skimp and save two hundred dollars to buy her children
    some Valentine's Day presents (since she didn't manage to get them
    anything on Christmas.)

    The young boy had been dropped off, by his mother, on the way to her
    second job. He was to use the money to buy presents for all his
    siblings and save just enough to take the bus home. He had not even
    entered the mall, when an older boy grabbed one of the hundred dollar
    bills and disappeared into the night.

    "Why didn't you scream for help?" I asked.

    The boy said, "I did."

    "And nobody came to help you?" I queried.

    The boy stared at the sidewalk and sadly shook his head.

    "How loud did you scream?" I inquired.

    The soft-spoken boy looked up and meekly whispered, "Help me!"

    I realized that absolutely no one could have heard that poor boy cry
    for help.

    So I grabbed his other hundred and ran to my car.
