Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia
once talked about a contest
he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest
was to find the most caring child.
The winner was a four year old child
whose next door neighbor
was an elderly gentleman
who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry,
the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard,
climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him
what he had said to the neighbor,
the little boy said,
"Nothing, I just helped him cry."
