What I Need

I saw this young man tonight huddled near a trash can outside a CVS Store.  I passed by him on my way in with that uncomfortable feeling that said "Please don't ask me for money."

On my way out, I ignored him again until I got to my car...something told me to ask him if he had eaten anything.  He said he had eaten early in the morning.  I had a hamburger in my car for dinner but gave it to him.  He was very grateful and tore into the food.

As I left, I realized he probably needed one thing more than that hamburger.  He probably needed a hug.
