Tony gives alms

The Kaulins family was minding its own business, standing at a bus stop, waiting for a bus, of course.

Andis thought he had espied a blind man playing a musical instrument.  Only problem was the blind man was close, hard to not see and not at all hidden.  But the sight definitely
got Andis to thinking as he saw that in front of the blind man was a bowl containing coins.

Andis gave Tony a one yuan coin and told Tony to put the coin in the blind man's bowl.  Tony did as his father bid him.  However he didn't seem to appreciate the significance of what he had done.   

It was the first time Tony had given alms, if that in fact was what giving alms meant.
