Homelessness is a major humanitarian crisis in several cities across the world. People often treat those suffering from homelessness with disdain, not taking into account the political and economic reasons that push them into that precarious state. Now a woman has shared how her small interaction with a homeless man potentially saved his life.

On Saturday, popular account CALL TO ACTIVISM (@CalltoActivism) shared a post by a person named Casey Fischer. Fischer recalled that she was at Dunkin’ Donuts when she noticed a “homeless guy sitting on the side of the road and picking up change”.

Fischer bought him a coffee and bagel and they both began talking. Recalling their conversation, she wrote, “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).”

Fischer further wrote that the man’s name was Chris and before they parted, he asked her to wait so that he could write something for her. Chris later gave her a small note, written on an old receipt paper that said, “’I wanted to kill myself today, because of u I now do not. Thank u, beautiful person’”.

This small gesture touched Fischer deeply. This post about Chris’s note has over 21,000 likes.
