Suddenly a beautiful voice caught my attention: an elderly homeless man stood in a corner between blankets and broken suitcases, singing the American national anthem. Overcome with curiosity, I went up and started talking to him. He began to tell me his story, just like a wise grandfather would. I was fascinated by those words in which I could see his life. Step by step he walked me through every moment of pain and tragedy with which fate had decided to guide him under that bridge…”
