Abby Fenton recently joined the Humanity Reboxed team. We asked her to give us a story of why she decided to join our team. This is what she said:
I decided to join the Humanity Reboxed mission because of a tragic yet touching story of a young man's life circumstances. This man had been on the streets for two years when another man attacked him, and was severely injured. After weeks of staying in a hospital recovering from a brain bleed, he was released. He had no hope. It was in this turmoil that our paths crossed. It started as a friendly conversation, but as our conversation deepened, he shared with me some of the poems he wrote. Although most revealed his utter hopelessness, he began to recite a particular poem, and at that moment his face lit up with excitement. He wrote of a conversation he had with a young woman who filled him with hopefulness and self-worth. It was clear that this short conversation made a positive impression in his life.
Through this young man's story, I discovered the lasting implications of a simple conversation. It is my goal, through love and conversations to be a positive impact on the lives touched by Humanity Reboxed.
