A janitor had to do something slightly outside of his job description one cold evening. The floors might have been gleaming and the cobwebs swept away, but nothing could have prepared him for what happened next and the note that held such a devastating message.
In his account of the story, the janitor was working in a school in Detroit, Michigan, when he was suddenly called to the rescue. All the children had left for the day, and the school was empty, but the janitor wasn’t alone for long. There was a rapping at the door, but who could be visiting the school at such a strange time?
The janitor recalled what happened, saying that he had rushed straight to the window to see who the visitor was. Instead of someone waiting patiently at the door, he spotted a young boy sprinting away. He went to open the door and was greeted by something wholly unexpected.
