I never understood why one of my friends would always give the last dollar in his pocket to any individual who walked up to him and asked. No matter if he was hungry, or if he went into a store with the intentions of purchasing an item for himself, he would always give his last dime to another who was in need. Always sacraficing his wants, for another’s needs. One day, I finally mustered up the courage to ask him, why did he always give his last dollar to any homeless person who walks up to you? He simply responded, “because I know I have more coming in" .
