After nine years on the Greensboro, North Carolina, police department, Officer Michael Rivers has come to know those who are homeless in his community. But recently he came upon a homeless woman he'd never seen before. Her t-shirt caught his eye. It said, "Homeless. The fastest way to become a nobody." He asked her if she'd eaten that day, and she said no.
"God put it on my heart to get her lunch," he said, so he grabbed pizzas from a nearby pizza shop and sat down on the grass next to her. He said their conversation was even better than the pizza. For 45 minutes he and the homeless woman, who called herself Michelle, shared their life stories. And the heartwarming moment was captured in a photo by a passerby and shared on Facebook.
