After approaching him, she asked the man to be happy, because it was a nice day and it wasn’t raining.
“Are you hot? Why don’t you go home — the ground is dirty,” she asked.
When he heard the question, the man responded that he has no home. However, he said that he was going to be fine. Upon hearing his reply, Janiyah was hit by a wave of sadness. She asked if he meant that he was homeless.
“So you have no food because you have no refrigerator,” Janiyah said.
In the Facebook post, her mother said that the little girl gave the man a few dollars from her purse. Janiyah requested the man to eat as it would make her happy.
“I like McDonald’s you should go there,” she said.
Her mother believes that Janiyah made his day. People watching the kid were inspired, and two more people came and gave money as well.
According to Today, the homeless man explained that his trailer burned down, and he lost everythingn including his wife.
“I felt for him. It just warms my heart,” wrote Kenyatta.
