When Karen Aguayo was hanging out with her college friends at the mall, she perhaps never expected to meet someone with such a heartbreaking story. In the end, though, she made time to speak to the stranger – and after doing so, she felt compelled to tell the world about him.
Aguayo is a freshman student at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. And, one day, she and some of her college friends headed down to the city’s Christown Spectrum mall. Something pretty special happened during that trip, however; the story would even eventually make national headlines.
