These days you’ll turn on the news and it honestly seems like there’s nothing but bad things going on in the world at any given moment. That’s because good news rarely ever sells!
But thankfully, for all the bad news out there in the world, it’s healthy to know that there will always be more good news going on, you just never hear about it much because happy news doesn’t make the media companies any money!
57-year-old Dan Williams has been down on his luck lately. The homeless man was killing time outside of a local Wendy’s fast food restaurant when he suddenly saw a cop coming his way.
Instead of their meet up ending up in an arrest or something that the news stations would just love to share, this homeless man and Sgt. McCoy got a quick lunch together. The officer asked what was going on in Dan’s life, and he found out that this homeless man was trying to trek down from Ohio to Louisiana to be with his family again.
That’s when Sgt. McCoy gathered some of his other cop friends and they all reached into their own wallets for an amazing gift.
