This lovely man’s name was Chris and Chris was one of the most honest & sincere people I’ve ever met. 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. I opened his note and this was it. ‘I wanted to kill myself today; because of you now I do not. Thank u, beautiful person.’ “
