About 2-3 weeks ago I went to Central Park. And I had an encounter with a Buddhist priest promoting Buddhism and asking for donations for a Buddhist temple to be built. The priest stopped me and asked me to help him out and I immediately said that I didn’t have change. I said that because I was busy and wanted to avoid any kind of distraction. The person then said that he has change and still urged me to help him out. And then he said something about being hungry. Then I came to the realization that I always see this person at Central Park, and he works really hard. He does not even get to sit and rest. I was amazed by his dedication to his job, and to appreciate his hard work I gave him all the money I had, which was only a 5 dollar bill. And he seemed pretty happy about it. Even though I gave him a small amount, he gave me a wristband in return. I treasured the wristband in my keepsake box. In ace club, we are taught to help everyone despite of one’s flaws, culture, religion and appearance. We are taught to be united and open minded. And I am glad to be a part of it.
