The Lone Man By the Highway

One time, me and a group of friends decided to take a trip to Missoula to hit up the mall. When we got there, I saw an old man sitting by the on ramp entrance of the freeway, with a help needed sign. It was ninety degrees outside and I was saddened because it appeared like nobody else who passed him by would even acknowledge him. I pulled up beside him and rolled down my window and he approached the vehicle and graciously accepted the twenty dollar bill I had to spare. I will never forget how excited he looked and I always hoped that I was not the only one all day or maybe in hours who had shown some compassion and care towards him. With any luck that twenty dollars helped him a lot.
