I had an inspiring encounter with a homeless man once. Some friends and I were walking along the railroad tracks and came across this friendly man and decided to chat with him. He said that he used to be a lawyer, but that he couldn’t take the pressures of life anymore and became an alcoholic. He became homeless, and stayed that way even after giving up drinking. He said that the freedom he now had was worth it. His daily routine consisted only of a few hours of can collecting early in the morning to give him just enough money to get by for the day.
