Homeless

(TruthSeekerDaily)  This video is making the rounds again via social media and for good reason, the message is one everyone needs, or needs to be reminded of.  The message is centered around the power of words, what is said or read really makes all the difference.   A blind man who appears homeless, sits with a sign that reads, “I’m Blind. Please Help,” but receives very little attention or assistance until a passerby changes the words on his sign.

The revised sign had a simple and poetic message, “It’s a beautiful day and I can’t see it.”  Suddenly pedestrians passing the poor man on the corner were eager to give generously.  Unaware of what brought about such significant change, the man asked what was done to his sign, to which the thoughtful stranger responds, “I’ve wrote the same, but different words.”

The video ends with the message, “Change your words. Change your world”.  If others took a moment to fully absorb the homeless man’s original message, just like the first passerby did, other people would have likely reacted with the same heart as the one that reworded the sign.  Not only is changing your words a positively impactful move, changing our minds to open our eyes and hearts is equally important.
