"I was on the train heading back into the office after a meeting yesterday and I noticed a man was being a bully on the train. He was harassing people to give him money. As he turned around, I noticed he was wearing a black Operation HOPE t-shirt. I smiled and asked him to come and sit next to me. I asked him why he was picking on people. He said he was hungry. I told him that I would give him some lunch money as long as he behaved and stopped picking on people. I also told him that he needed to wear the shirt with pride and told him what a great organization he needed to represent. I couldn’t afford a bad reputation, he chuckled. He promised to research what OHI stands for. I gave him a few bucks to eat- he thanked me and walked away giving me his blessings."
