In this video, we see a blind homeless man sitting on the sidewalk with a sign that reads, “I’m blind, please help.” As you would expect, most passersby ignore him, but a few drop some coins into his can or onto the ground in front of him.
That all changes when one woman decides she can’t just walk past him. She grabs his sign, makes some changes, then replaces it before continuing on her way. The difference in how he is treated is remarkable, and truly shows us how important words can be.
This video was originally produced by Purple Feather Online Content Specialists as a demonstration that word choice matters, but it also serves as a reminder that we are all capable of inspiring this sort of change. Simply by altering our outlook on life, we too can reap the benefits of positivity.
Watch the video below to see what she did to his sign, and share your thoughts on this touching message in the comments section. Remember, your words have the power to completely change someone’s day.
