One day, a student and mom named Casey observed a homeless man picking up change on the side of the road. By chance, Casey and the homeless man soon found themselves in the same shop together, a Dunkin’ Donuts. What happened next was life changing.
She later wrote of their encounter on Facebook, “Eventually I saw him stroll into Dunkin, as he was counting his change to buy something I began to get super annoying and talked to him over and over again even when he didn’t really want to talk.”
“He told me a lot about how people are usually very mean to him because he’s homeless, how drugs turned him into the person he hated, he lost his mom to cancer, he never knew his dad and he just wants to be someone his mom would be proud of (along with another hours worth of conversation.)”
Casey continued, “After realizing I really need to get back to class Chris asked me to wait so he can write something down for me. Handing me a crumpled up receipt he apologized for having shaky hand writing, smiled, and left.”
When Casey opened the note, she was shocked to read these words: “I wanted to kill myself today, because of u I now do not. Thank u, beautiful person.”
It’s so incredible that they just happened to be at the same place at the same time so that this kind act could happen.
