Once in a while you hear a story about people really coming together for the greater good.

Little did they know that this small write up would capture the hearts of hundreds of people and would spread throughout the world via the Twitter machine. What was originally assumed to be a quiet gathering for Harold turned out to be a highly regarded event, supported by the masses.
People swarmed to this event in support for the veteran and the impact can be felt globally. Strangers coming together to support a man who will never realize how much he was cared for, but the compassion will be appreciated by millions of people who get the chance to read this article.
