35 Years On The Road, This Is How Facebook Changed The Life Of A Homeless Man

It's irritating to see beggars who are physically fit and young but still choose to beg for a living. They should understand the value of life and not waste it in begging for money when they are all capable to work.

No power in the world has the capability to stop a person to follow what he wants. The condition of a person is not a barrier which can possibly stop him to go miles and miles in his life.

I am not saying this just because I want you all to feel inspired, but because I have just come across to the supremely inspirational and eye-opening story of a man named Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho. He has lived 35 long years of his life on the road but what he did not do was wasting time. He used his time effectively in writing his thoughts and feelings. Nothing better can a person with such circumstances could have ever done if the person is not greatly self-motivated.

Mr Raimundo proved that dreams can be pursued in any condition.
