Take heed of your tear ducts; this story could restore (or reinforce) your faith in humanity. Clarence Blackmon, 81, of Fayetteville, North Carolina had just spent several months hospitalized undergoing treatment for cancer when he came home to an empty fridge. Weighing only 115 pounds, Blackmon was hungry, but too weak to go to the grocery store himself. With no one else to call, he rung 911. Luckily, he got Marilyn Hinson on the other line.
“I can’t do anything. I can’t go anywhere. I can’t get out of my…chair,” he told Hinson. “I just want somebody to help me buy some food.”
