This story made me smile and gave my heart a warm hug. Anthony Cymerys is an 82-year old barber who gives haircuts to the homeless every Wednesday. Outdoors. He uses a car battery to power his clippers.
The cost: One hug.

Thank you, Anthony Cymerys, for making the world a better place!

    This is so beautiful! God’s blessings to him.

  4. +I just reblogged this from somewhere else, and it still warms my heart. I’m glad you posted this, too. Tells us to all think “What can I do, too?” without making a big showy deal out of it. Thanks.

      I agree. Egoless service versus ego-full service. A world of difference between the two, even though they both make a positive difference in the world.
