A little boy selling flowers, and a lesson

Once, my wife and some friends were having breakfast in a small restaurant.
There is this little boy moving from one table to another trying to attract the attention of the people inside so that he can sell his flowers. But nobody seemed to notice him. The were too busy eating.
And then, he moves to our table. I opened my wallet to give him 50 cents for a small bunch of flowers. And then I asked the boy how he can earn a day and what does he do with the money.
The body said, i earn about two dollars and I give to my MOM for food. What about your father, does he work? My Father is a fisherman but he is sick. So now I realize that this little boy is the sole breadwinner for the family.
And then he was called by a man from another table. I was watching the man give the boy 50 cents but he did not get the flowers, so it was an act of giving. This give me a lesson to be more kind next time.
