Always Appreciate The Stranger Who Is There For You

Last year while I was traveling through Europe blindly, not knowing a single person or where I would stay, amazing strangers opened up their homes and lives to me in beautiful acts of kindness.

The most memorable of strangers was French activist and We Are Change Paris member Joel Boujassy.

Joel taught me an important message about life in the 2 weeks I spent with him. It does not matter how small your apartment is or how little money you have. What matters most is the company you keep and the attitude you have.

Joel may have not been a well known figure throughout the movement, but the person he was deserves as much respect and tribute as anyone else.  R.I.P. Joel Boujassy. We will always remember you.

    This was really good Luke. I feel like I miss someone I’ve never met.

    He seemed like a very loving man.

    What a lovely man and what a positive view he had. I had a feeling that the direction of this video would leave me saddened for a person I have never met;I was right. Good bye my friend; I wish we could have shared a bottle of wine together, it would have been fun.

    I hope that you packed in all the life you could have in your forty years; I wish you could have had forty more because the world needs people like you to happen more often.
