As she continued to observe the man, Fischer noticed that he was picking up something from the ground. When she knew what it was, she was saddened. He was picking up some change. The man then went inside the coffee shop, and that’s when Fischer approached him. Curiosity got to her, and she wanted to know more about him.
Fischer bought him a bagel and a coffee and decided to sit down for a good, long conversation. She learned many things about her newfound friend, from how he lost his mom to cancer, how drugs turned him into someone he despises, to how people look down on him just because he’s homeless.
Soon enough, Fischer discovered that the homeless man goes by the name of Chris. For Fischer, it was an eye-opening conversation, and it helped her learn to view things from another perspective. As the man left, he handed her a note that shocked. It read,
“I wanted to kill myself today because of u I now do not. Thank u, beautiful person.”
Fischer indirectly saved a man’s life that way, and she realized that regardless if someone has a fancy home to go to at the end of the day or not, they too are just humans. They need help, and they deserved to be helped.
