There is an addiction crisis all around the world, so many good people succumb to the temptations of drugs and alcohol. It’s usually a way to cope when life deals you a crappy hand, unfortunately, there aren’t enough resources out there, so people end up on the streets and some even die from their addictions.

“God allowed our paths to cross again… ironically in a different Chevron. He was waiting for me outside the bathroom. He stood there with tears in his eyes and asked if I remembered him.
It took me about two seconds, and I knew. It was my Will!! He nostalgically reminded me about a pair of boots and a jacket I gave him to make sure he didn’t freeze. I also gave him $7 to get his ID… with a promise that he wouldn’t spend it on drugs.
The heartfelt post continued:
Will kept his promise. He got his ID, a job, and later a wife. Will also found grace in the arms of our heavenly creator. We totally snot cried in the middle of the store before asking the clerk to take our picture.”
