Security guard at Waffle House notices sobbing man with boy, puts them in his car and drives off.

Amen Webster was a security guard on his shift at Waffle House in Atlanta when he saw a little boy shivering at a table. Near the boy was a man who was clearly his father, looking overwhelmed and heartbroken.

Amen knew that look and what it meant: the man and his son were homeless. Amen himself was once homeless — he knew what it was like to have no money, no options and nothing but anxiety at the thought of sleeping on the streets.

Amen quietly approached the man, whose name was LaMont Hammond. Amen asked LaMont what was wrong, and listened closely as the man shared his worries, fighting off tears so he wouldn’t scare his son.

Amen did more than listen. He got up, told his boss he needed a quick break and then did something for LaMont that eventually made headlines around the U.S. Watch to see what happened next, and witness Amen’s profound act of generosity for yourself…
