Tonight a young woman shared a story of a very meaningful encounter. When she was in high school, she went through a devastating break up with her boyfriend. It left her sad and depressed for months. During that time, she was on the city bus and just looking out the window. A man came and sat down next to her. He gently touched her shoulder and told her everything would be alright. He then took off the necklace he was wearing and placed it over her head. Then he was gone. She gave him no reply or response. After a while, she looked down and realized that the man had placed a cross around her neck. She now has it in a special place so when she sees it, she remembers the compassion of the stranger and his words that everything will be OK.
