I met a girl on the train who said “I don’t have many nice things, I don’t have many friends, but I have God in my life. And that keeps me going.” And it made me sad. So I told her “That’s really beautiful” When she reached her stop I knew that I would probably never see her again. And I hoped no one was mean to her that day. or the next day. And if...
