“Never should a man abandon himself.”
Every once in a while a story comes across my path that touches my soul and melts my heart. This story is exactly that. The story of a homeless man in Brazil, named Raimundo Sobrinho, who dreamed of becoming a poet. Yet, for thirty-five years he was faceless, nameless and one of thousands of homeless, that was passed by everyday.
Yet, in 2011 a woman named Shalla Monteiro, befriended him and his life was forever changed.
A beautiful story and reminder to us all that everyone we pass belongs to someone, has a story, a dream and a purpose.
