This Young Man Wants a Little Help. Do You Think He Gets It? It’s What Happens at the 3:10 Mark That Really Blew Us Away.
Remember the video of Johannes freezing at a bus stop, and the helping hand of people around. YouTuber Yousef Erakat, who uploads video at Fouseytube, was inspired by that one – which came from Norway – to do the same in America. Says Yousef:
“I did not expect to capture so much lack of empathy. We shot all day, and came out with $2.10 which was all returned. The issue is not about him “not looking homeless enough” or “people thinking he’s a scam.” It’s about how they don’t even try to look and turn a blind eye so they can go about their days. Was it too much to stop for two seconds and ask him what was up? Where his parents were? Where his sister was sleeping? Nothing. And it was truly heartbreaking. We have the opportunity to help out and take it for granted while kids in other countries are dying and have no helping hand. Where is the love?”
The love, as it turns out, is in the heart of Yousef and Nathan. You’ll be uplifted by the end of the video. We promise.
