We live without knowing what will happen tomorrow, we can only wonder if it will be a good day or a bad day. Will we meet someone? Will we have a pleasant surprise or will we have a conversation with the person we least expected? Only time will tell story you will see below is one we have no hesitation in sharing with all of you.
She agreed to let us spread the experience.
Gina Nomi currently works as a paramedic in the United States in California to be exact. In fact, having that profession was like a dream come true. However, 15 years ago, everything was different. After finishing her studies and in the middle of her youth, she decided to become a police officer. During her time as a public servant, she had an accident that she will never forget.
The story goes back to the fall of 2005. It was a normal day for Gina, who was preparing to fulfill her duty. Her task at that time was to patrol the streets of the city. On her route, she saw parents with their happy children, students, business people. Everyone seemed to be minding their own business.
However, at one point she noticed a homeless man rummaging through the garbage cans in the distance. Gina had seen this before, but somehow something strange prompted her to approach him. I saw him in the distance. He was alone next to a dumpster. He had taken some bags out of there, maybe to find food.
It was obvious he was hungry. I felt sorry for him so I approached him and asked him, how long have you been here? The woman said at that moment, when the man saw her in her uniform, he began to apologize. Excuse me Officer, I’m leaving. I’m sorry.
That is understandable because normally it is the authorities who almost always chase them away. But Gina replied, no, I didn’t come here to tell you to leave. Calm down, I won’t hurt you. Hearing that, the man calmed down after that time, the two began to exchange words. The homeless man told her that his name was Will and that he had been living on the street for ten years.
However, before his life changed, he had a home and even had plans for the future. He longed to have children. However, his sad story began after his beloved wife lost her life unexpectedly. It was difficult for a man in love to survive such a great loss and start life anew. Therefore, to get away from reality, the man started drinking alcohol and then taking drugs.
He did this consciously. According to him, it was a way to cope with his grief. Soon he was out of work and Unsurprisingly out of his home. Gina was moved by the man’s story. Perhaps because of his youth inexperience and naivety, she decided to do something that few would do on the same day the woman bought him a pair of shoes and a jacket that she bought in a store.
It was very cold. She also brought him some hot food. Will couldn’t believe it. Gina decided to visit him the next day and the day after that and the day after that. They talked about many things, got along well, became good friends.
One day the woman decided to help him. She took him to a rehabilitation center for him to leave this life. He had but to enroll he needed an identification document. The man was at a crossroads because he had no money to get one. So Gina gave him $7 so he could get his ID.
The woman believed he could find a job quickly and of course change his lifestyle. Although Gina knew this could be very risky as homeless people would be tempted to spend the money on the next fix or alcohol. But something inside her suggested that he would not be able to do this. Certainly before saying goodbye, she made Will promise that day that he would spend the money on his documents and not on other things. Gina honestly believed she was doing a good deed.
But once she didn’t see Will at her place and also the next day, she knew something was up. The woman kept coming to the same place where he used to be. But no, he wasn’t there. He just disappeared. After visiting the health center where the man would go, she was informed that Will had not shown up either.
Of course she felt cheated. She believed that this man could change her life. It’s hard to imagine, but with that feeling she lived for 14 years. She didn’t know if he was okay or not, or if maybe something happened to him. Soon after the day Will disappeared, the young woman resigned from her position as an officer and decided to fulfill her dream.
She became a paramedic. Of course, from time to time she wondered what might have become of Will. She hoped he was okay and one day she would get her question answered. But October 24, 2019 was a special day. Gina drove to a gas station.
As she paid at the cashier, she saw out of the corner of her eye a man standing behind and watching her intently as she was about to leave the store. He initially blocked her path. Gina thought the guy wasn’t himself, but he looked her straight in the eye and then said, do you remember me? He stood there in tears and asked me if I remembered him. I kept thinking and suddenly realized who it was.
The woman said it really was Will and it turned out that he had kept his promise. He did manage to get his documents and even got a job at a construction site. The hours were such that he could not leave and show up in the evening at the place where they always met. And when he arrived a week later the woman was no longer there. In his new job he worked for several months.
The man was even promoted but in another city. After moving there a few years later he met his future wife who helped him become a better man. Will won his happiness. The man tried to find Gina but was unsuccessful. Their paths had simply parted.
But what is more surprising after 14 years, fate brought them together again in a city hundreds of miles away from where they once met. At the station that day, two adults cried like children and neither of them was afraid to express their emotions because that chance meeting was not just a coincidence.
Fate wanted them to come together. We cried in the middle of the store before I asked one of the employees to take a picture with him. I wanted to share this experience because kindness is of great importance.
A kind gesture can change the course of someone’s life. You may never come across something like this but will is proof of it. Be kind to everything you do one day that what you did will find you and surprise you with eternal gratitude.
Gina and will plan to keep in touch from now on and renew the friendship they once had. No doubt a beautiful story that truly teaches us that a small, kind gesture can make or turn a person’s destiny for the better.
