"song of hope"

I stopped in my tracks when I came across these two guys and a dog. One was homeless. The other, who was just an average guy, reached out to a person in need. And in the middle of the street, during rush-hour—they began to pray. It was part hymn and for a few moments, their song of hope and despair filled the street. I am not a religious person, but this act of kindness from one stranger to another moved me. So here it is.
