You know those inspirational forwards that you get in your email this time of year?
Well, I thought this was another one of those until I read the last line. Hilarious!


Oddly enough, he was holding a hundred dollar bill in his hand.
Thinking that he had gotten lost from his parents, I asked him what
was wrong. He told me his sad story. He said that he came from a
large family. He had three brothers and four sisters. His father had
died when he was nine years old. His mother was poorly educated and
worked two full time jobs. She made very little to support her large
family.

Nevertheless, she had managed to skimp and save two hundred dollars to
buy her children Christmas presents. The young boy had been dropped
off, by his mother, on the way to her second job. He was to use the
money to buy presents for all his siblings and save just enough to
take the bus home. He had not even entered the mall, when an older boy
grabbed one of the hundred dollar bills and disappeared into the
night.

Why didn't you scream for help?" I asked.

The boy said, "I did."

"And nobody came to help you?" I wondered.

The boy stared at the sidewalk and sadly shook his head.

"How loud did you scream?" I inquired.

The soft-spoken boy looked up and meekly whispered, "Help me..."

I realized then that absolutely no one could have heard that poor boy
cry for help. So I grabbed his other hundred and ran to my truck.
