A video of a fight in a bar went viralAn unperturbed man appears eating his kebabSocial networks signal their harmonious tranquility We upload photos and stories, show the music we are listening to at the moment or share news that we find interesting, among many other things, however when we do we are not aware of the popularity that a simple publication can get. When we share things we do it thinking that only our circle of acquaintances will receive it, however there are some publications that go viral and can make a person the center of all eyes.This was the case of Chris Hill, a 52-year-old man who became the protagonist of a video that has already traveled the world. This man was quietly eating a kebab and some fries in a restaurant where suddenly an aggressive fight began. Chris, instead of reacting to seeing this brutal scene, remained seated and enjoying his food at all times, and this fact is what really surprised Internet users.Wow fight In kens kebab pic.twitter.com/WcvGgE2kqY– Beth Deakin?

They helped me find a school, they also helped me improve my literacy skills and get the uniform and the school books.The ISPCC says that begging has a negative impact on health and emotional well-being of a child, adding that it is associated with neglect and is almost always detrimental to a young person’s education or even literacy.The ISPCC warns that giving money is not the answer to child begging.“Child begging includes children begging alone and adults begging with children or babies either on the street or door to door.“Children begging may be at risk of emotional, physical and sexual abuse.Giving money increases the chances of child begging on a regular basis and does not address the root cause of begging.Instead the charity recommends giving food or a hot drink, talking to gardaí and contacting the ISPCC.“If you have an ongoing concern about a particular child, you can also contact the Health Service Executive (HSE).”Leanbh can be contacted on 01-2342009 or 087 0625198Read: If you see children begging on the street, the ISPCC want you to report it>
