I have been filled with all things poetry so far this month, and today I came across a story, quite unexpectedly, of a poet. People e-mail me interesting things, or share neat links with me on Facebook, and when they move me enough, I’m compelled to share them here, with all of you. 🙂 I hope you find this story as wonderful and heart-warming as I did. If you did, perhaps you can pass it along to others, too.

In April 2011, he befriended a young woman named Shalla Monteiro. Impressed with his poetry she decided to help him with his dream of publishing a book, she created a Facebook page to characterize the writing of Raymond. Neither could have expected what happened next.
