    Officer Buys Barefoot Homeless Man, Boots

    This officer saw a homeless guy with no shoes and blisters the size of his palm. he asked him his shoe size, then bought him a pair of $75.00 boots and socks. he put the socks and shoes on the man himself: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/11/30...ral/?hpt=hp_c2

    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!

    Well, there's always a twist to a story, right folks? He was found barefoot again. ~only in America!!~

    From the article:

    He says he's grateful for the gift, but he wants "a piece of the pie" because the photo was posted online "without permission."

    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.
