Julio Diaz was mugged when getting off the subway on his way home. The way he handled it will touch your heart. Victim Treats His Mugger Right
Honestly, I didn't believe this story at first. I read it once, listened to the recording of him explaining it, and read it again. Incredible story of caring, courage, love, and the ability to see potential in another person who may not see it in themselves.
My only question is, if the mugger had not been a child, if he had been older, how would Julio have reacted? Would he have maintained the same courage? Would he have still given him some money?
