Five-year-old touches hearts in Waffle House

Five-year-old Josiah Duncan and his mom Ava Faulk were eating at a Waffle House in Alabama recently when a homeless man wandered in and sat at a table. Josiah noticed that nobody was serving him, and asked his mom why. She explained that he was homeless and probably just came inside to get warm. That's when Josiah insisted they buy him a meal. He jumped up and asked the man if he needed a menu, because he "could not order without one." The man asked for a hamburger, and wondered, "can I have some bacon?" Josiah said he could have as much as he wanted.

Before the man took his first bite, Josiah asked if he would say grace with him. The homeless man agreed, so Josiah prayed very loud, "God our Father, we thank you for our many blessings. Amen."and the eleven other diners in the restaurant prayed aloud with him. By the time he was done, there wasn't a dry eye in the restaurant. Josiah's mom said, "Watching my son touch the eleven people in that Waffle House will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments of a parent I'll ever get to witness."
