“Damned is the man who abandons himself.” Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho
These six words show that the worse the situation is, never ever should a man consider it lost.
The following is truly magical tale, one to inspire, to give hope and to show the importance of the arts and creativity in our world and the power it has for every single one of us.
“Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless in São Paulo, Brazil, for nearly 35 years, and became locally known for sitting in the same spot and writing every day. In April 2011, he was befriended by a young woman named Shalla Monteiro. Impressed by his poetry and wanting to help him with his dream of publishing a book, she created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s writing. Neither could have expected what happened next.”
