It’s a beautiful story, but cynical, big-city me thinks he also got lucky the kid didn’t stab him after he took the wallet.

Yep, sometimes they give you the knife, sometimes they stab you in the gut. It’s a risk, and a choice – do you let that risk put you off being the sort of person you want to be?

Me, I’d be too scared of the risk.

I hear many people say nasty things about/to people whose job is manual or unskilled labor (such as fast-food workers or retail workers), so I always try to be extra nice to them. Sometimes the things they do are frustrating, such as not fixing your food right or not ringing your items up correctly, but they are people, with feelings and even though they do not hold prestigious jobs or a master’s degree, there is absolutely nothing wrong with an honest day’s work. They could be having issues at home, maybe they are being abused or they got turned down for a better-paying job or did not get into the college they wanted or maybe they are just having a really bad day. Just a little bit of kindness and a pleasant word may brighten their day or help them to feel just a little bit better.

I’ll be honest though, I would not have tried to talk to someone who just robbed me at knife point. I think I would be to scared that they might actually stick that knife in me if I tried to speak to them. Kudos to Julio Diaz for having the courage to go the extra mile and possibly helping that young man.
