“I don’t know you and you don’t know me. Maybe you never will. But that doesn’t matter. Whatever your story, your hopes, your dreams, your passion (or lack of), I care about you as a person. Even if we have different views and different goals, I want you to succeed. Make the best out of the life you have, find the light amidst the darkness. Life is difficult, believe me I know, but I want you to walk out of here with your head held high because you are doing your best to make it in a complicated world. I know it won’t be easy, but it’s a lot easier when you have at least one person pulling for ya. So, if you ever feel down on yourself, just know you’ve got at least one random stranger out there who wants you to make it.
Sincerely, A Student
Popped into HM to buy a sweater for work… this guy follows me in, says,”You probably don’t remember me. I see you walk down this street a few times a week and you give a dollar to at least one homeless person, you’ve given me at least $30 over the last six months. I finally found a job and a place to live. Thanks.” Then hands me $50 and walks away.”
