All This Dude Wanted To Do Was Write.


I thought this video was super inspirational.  I wasn’t sure what it was about at first, but I am so glad I watched it!  What an inspiring 4.5 minutes.

It’s an HD video so be sure to watch it in FullScreen.

Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless in São Paulo, Brazil, for nearly 35 years, and became locally known for sitting in the same spot and writing every day. In April 2011, he was befriended by a young woman named Shalla Monteiro. Impressed by his poetry and wanting to help him with his dream of publishing a book, she created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s writing. Neither could have expected what happened next. – Facebook Stories
