In other news…

Standard

So i came across this article earlier today, and in light of today’s events in Woolwich, I thought maybe people would appreciate a more positive news story… Admittedly, it doesn’t start out too well, but hang in there.

I don’t know how many of you heard about this story in the news about a year ago: a homeless man was discovered next to a Miami motorway having his face chewed off by a naked man, who, on being ordered to stop by the police, refused, and was therefore shot and killed.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, the homeless man lost both of his eyes and nose in the attack, but is now getting free healthcare in an assisted living facility, all the food and heating he can take, a guitar of his own, and is actually living a better life than he was before the attack. In his own words, he’s ‘pretty content’.

And on a day like today, when it seems like the world is full of rage, it’s nice to see that occasionally something positive can come out of an awful event like this one.
