God loves you and knows your struggle.

Photographer Richard Wah, 44, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has no pictures of his high school graduation because, when he was a teenager, he didn't have enough money to pay a photographer. Recently he was riding a public bus and saw some high school grads with caps and gowns, but no parents or family around them. He snapped these two photos of lonely grads and posted them on Facebook, offering a free graduation photo to any teen who can't afford it.

"I don't know what your story is and why you can't afford them, but if you TRULY can't afford high school graduation pictures and live in Philadelphia, we are allowing you to pay whatever you can afford," Richard wrote on Facebook. "You made it. You have graduated high school. God loves you and He knows your struggle." The photographer even hired a barber and two make-up artists to spruce up the grads. Since his offer was posted, he's reportedly been contacted by at least a dozen teens who are grateful for his generosity and kindness.
