Weird! I just posted a comment but it did not show up. I hope the in the tunnel comments are correct. In any case, your act of kindness is inspiring.


I hope the commenters who said the boy may be in the tunnel are correct. Your compassion is commendable.

My grandson - who looks to be about the same age as this boy - has suddenly gone from bundling up even in summer, to stripping down to just shorts all the time. I'm pretty sure this is puberty hormones at work, so I'm saying a little prayer that the young man with the violin may have the same story. And if not - that he will soon have the coat he needs. Meanwhile - rich or poor - good for him for finding a way to be out making some money himself and thanks to you for being there to contribute.
Love the family portrait in your previous post - AND your mitten choices. I spotted a couple in there that I think I'm going to have to pay closer attention to.




My brother-in-law says kids that age are "in the tunnel" and are not hot or cold! What a wonderful story Kim. (And Runner's Alley - yes! They fit me several years ago and I've had the best luck with the model they recommended!)


Musicians have a hard time finding suitable work. A man who loves his craft and is willing to play on the street deserves our respect. Good for you, good for Hannah!


Yeah, my 14 yo goes to school in shorts and a tech t-shirt. I c.a.n.n.o.t get him to cover up. Hoping that common sense prevails soon. He rationale is his locker is too small and doesn't want to drag it around all day and his wait for the bus is 2 minutes at best. This poor boy you met I am hoping is also just as stubborn, though that's a long time to be exposed to the elements.


This is a great story and I'm glad you and Hannah got to enjoy this little boy's music. The pre-teen and teen boys I know rarely wear a coat despite the temps so I'm hoping he just chose not to wear one, too.


What a lovely memory for you and Hannah (and the boy) to share <3

Thank you for supporting struggling musicians, Kim!!


You are so good. Truly.

Oh Kim, this made me teary for so many reasons. Thank you for sharing this bittersweet little story.
