Josiah Duncan and his mom Ava Faulk were eating at a Waffle House in Alabama some weeks ago when they spotted a man outside the restaurant holding his bike and carrying a bag. Noticing the man's unkempt appearance, Josiah peppered his mom with questions: Where was his house? His family? Where does he keep his groceries? Upon discovering that the man had no home and was alone, the 5-year-old, determined to help feed the homeless man, pleaded with Faulk to buy him a meal from the restaurant.
"He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him. So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can't order without one," Faulk told WSFA.
While the man first insisted on a no-frills burger, the mother and son reportedly told him to order whatever he wanted. But before he could eat, Faulk told WSFA that Josiah "wanted to say the blessing with him," and proceeded to sing a prayer with the man and the 11 other Waffle House patrons, bringing the entire establishment to tears.
Faulk said to the station: "Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I'll ever get to witness."
