Boy, 5, Makes Entire Waffle House Cry With Kind Act

Diners at a Waffle House in Alabama were treated to full stomachs and full hearts a few weeks ago all thanks to a 5-year-old.

Josiah Duncan was with his mom Ava Faulk at a Waffle House when he noticed a disheveled man.

"He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him. He just kind of sat there," his mother explained to WSFA.

Ava told WSFA her son instantly became troubled by the stranger and began asking her questions about him. After she explained that he was homeless and what that meant, Josiah insisted they get him a meal.

"Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because he couldn't order without one," she explained. "He said, 'Can I have bacon?.' And I said, 'You can have as much bacon as you want.'"

But before he chowed down, Josiah asked if the man would bless the food with them. He agreed, plus 11 other customers joined in to pray out loud.

"Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House [that night] will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I'll ever get to witness," his mother said.
