It read: “I wanted to kill myself today. Because of you, now I do not. Thank you, beautiful person.”
If it wasn’t for Casey’s simple act of kindness and time investment in a random stranger, he may not be here today. She doesn’t exactly know why she was led to talk to that man, but she’s so glad she did.

The Post Follows:
Casey’s encounter has now touched the hearts of thousands. Just between the Love What Matters Facebook page and Casey’s post, the story was shared over 160,000 times within days, and that number only continues to grow over a year later.
Let’s continue to circulate what matters by sharing this story with your friends. It’s easy for us to underestimate the power of a small act of generosity, but Casey’s story is proof that sometimes a $3 cup of coffee can save a life.
We don’t always know what’s going on under the surface when we meet people on the street, but we can be certain that we will never regret having been kind to them.
Homeless people in particular have a much higher rate of depression and suicide. So instead of judging how they got into the position, they’re in, let’s love them through it, with a bagel, coffee…or just a friendly pat on the back that says, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here.”
