I was walking out of a grocery store and noticed a man from the homeless community lying down right outside. I paused to see if I could offer to grab something for him but I wasn’t sure if he was asleep or just resting. WhenI got close enough to assess, he looked up at me and I’m sure it easily looked like I was gawking at him. Do you like this shirt? Buy it now. Wear and tell us your story.

He immediately started cussing me out. “F#$* you!” He shouted it a few times. I wasn’t sure if I should just walk away, but then I thought about how terrible it must be for him to wake up and catch someone staring at him like he was on display. I’m Sorry For What I Said When You Tried To Wake Me Up. So I gave him a massive smile as he shouted in my face and told him that I was just trying to see if he was awake, that I wanted to grab something for him but didn’t want to disturb him by asking what he’d like if he was sleeping.

His face fell. He began apologizing profusely. He started begging me to forgive him and he was almost in tears. Even when I came back with the very small request of food he made, he continued to apologize despite how frequently I told him not to worry. He shouted his apology as I walked away down the street. I could still hear him calling out sorry to me as I rounded the corner.

And I thought about what it might have been like in his day if I had just walked away. How haunting is it for him to constantly be looked at? How humiliating might it be to have people gawk at your life struggle so consistently that the lens you view the world with has been altered because that’s just your reality? So many of us know this pain in different ways.
