I was sitting in the back of a pick up truck waiting to go somewhere when this young girl approached the truck and was looking at us.  I handed her some candy, but she would not eat it.  I motioned to her that it was ok to eat, but she would not.  Then a toddler wearing only a t-shirt walked over to her and the girl picked the baby up in her arms, unwrapped the candy and gave it to the baby.  Then I realized that she would not eat the candy until her baby sister had something to eat first, so I gave her another piece of soft candy and she gladly ate it!
