A Boy’s First Watch October 25, 2012 – Posted by beaudefrax
I had gone to my bank (in Nigeria) to withdraw some money and was given a beautiful, blue, customized watch as a free gift.

As I left there, I thought to myself that I didn’t need the watch. I was already wearing one! I thought that there were people who needed that watch more than me, people who had never worn one before.

My sister came around and I handed her the watch to give any of the boys who go around begging with their physically-disabled parents. My sister’s hostel is very close to where they usually stay.

A few days later one of the boys, about 14 years old, came around my sister’s lecture hall with his blind mother to beg for money as usual. My sister then walked up to him and asked him if he had a watch. He said, "No." And my sister gave the watch to him. She said he started shouting, saying, "Thank you! Thank you!" He was so happy. He told his mother what had happened and she was happy too. He tore the watch from it’s packaging and put it on immediately! He loved it.

Love unites indeed. Never stop loving when you know you can.
