“Feeding the homeless is the highlight of my life”
Oh, my God. Stop this. Seriously. How am I supposed to go on with my work day after watching this video?
You might have missed it but over the weekend, this video of 4-year old Austin Perine went viral over the weekend. It explains it in the video but once Austin understood that there were human beings that were homeless just like some animals, he set out to feed them.
I just don’t even know what to say about this kid. There are legit no words to explain just how incredible he is at 4-years old. Just like one of these guys in this video said, this kid gives the world hope that there is a lot of good out there. And yeah, it might sound corny but this straight up gave me chills.
His superhero name is President Austin and I need this kid in the White House one day. Yeah, I don’t know his foreign policies. I don’t know how he would conduct business overseas, but I’m saying if this kid wants to be the President, I’m voting him in. No doubter.
This might be my favorite video of 2018 so far. I want to meet this kid now. Not that I was having a bad day or anything, but damn do I feel good after watching that.
When I was his age, I needed those toys. You selfish bastard. You have kids like Austin telling his parents that he doesn’t want toys. He wants that money to go towards feeding the homeless. Meanwhile back in 1998, my stupid self is asking for toys when there are hungry people out there. I think I just talked myself into hating myself.
After he gives out every sandwich he says, “Don’t forget to show love”. I’m about to go give everyone in my office a hug and tell them the same thing. I’d get a call from HR though so we’re pumping the breaks.
Shoutout to Austin Perine. This kid is now a forever legend.
