Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The police, the homeless, the boots
Many of you probably read/heard about it already, but I thought if you have not that this anecdote would touch you and put you in the Christmas spirit. So here it is: a NYPD police officer, Lawrence DePrimo (or Larry De Primo), bought boots to a homeless man who was barefoot on a cold winter day in New York. A tourist took the picture and he is now a media darling. I rarely think much of these kinds of stories, but this Good Samaritan anecdote touched me. I don't want to comment much about it. I just find it heart warming.
