The man couldn't understand what was happening to him. He figured that he was doing the same thing that anyone in his position would have done. The man was emotional and he couldn't contain the stream of tears that were running down his face. He never expected that one move could change his life forever. And it all started because he stumbled across that simple piece of paper on the street.

Considering that Elmer Alvarez was homeless, he figured that things couldn't get much worse. Just like many others, he never thought that he'd be living on the streets, but he had finally reached rock bottom. Every day was a battle between Elmer and his demons. He had finally gotten clean, and he figured that his life was going to gradually fall back into place, but his previous life choices were always there to taunt him.

And to make things even worse, Elmer was in Connecticut and it was about to be winter. Elmer released a hopeless sigh, and as his breath turned into steam, he made his way to the place that he seemed to have the most luck. Strangers were helping him get through his day-to-day needs, but he never knew what each day would bring him.

Elmer would later realize that the events that happened that day would change his life forever, even though he didn't know it yet. He chugged along through the frigid morning, but he felt like he looked invisible to everyone - - as if he was just a ghost walking through the streets of Connecticut. "Can you spare any change?" he asked the people walking past him. Every now and then he would luck out and someone would reach into their pocket for a few coins to give him.

Elmer decided that he needed to keep moving, so he began to take the long walk to another block. People quickly walked by Elmer, their minds on what to get for lunch, and their cold hands shoved into their pockets. Elmer wished that he had the chance to worry about what to pick out for lunch, but unfortunately, he was in survival mode. He was wondering where he was going to get his next meal...if it was going to come at all. That was when he saw something lying on the ground.
