When I was young and we visited the dentist or doctor’s office there would always be a copy of Highlights Magazine in the waiting room.  In it I loved to read the comic strip "Goofus and Gallant". 

In the comic, two boys are given a situation in life in which they need to respond.

When Jody Richards saw a homeless man begging outside a downtown Washington, DC McDonald’s, he bought the man a cheeseburger.  No one noticed, except a sociologist doing a study on the poor.  And there was nothing unusual about this, except that Richards was homeless, too, and the 99-cent cheeseburger represented a lavish chunk of the $9.50 he had earned that day from panhandling.
