  1. I had a lot of thoughts run through my head when I read this. It’s a lovely, compassionate story that fills one with hope and gratitude. But it also makes me wonder if Diaz had run into a teen with a gun with the anger to use it, well, what would have happened. It’s unfortunate but I think he was lucky. And so was the young man whose life is changed because of this encounter. So I am of two mindsets on this story. And sad that I am even of two mindsets.
