What a endearing story of a beautiful old man who has weathered the storms of life and suffered greatly at the hands of murderous lunatic thugs. And now finally all his dreams for a celebration of coming of age have come true and he has made it and celebrated with his extended family. Bravo and three cheers for this lovely man. God Bless him and may he enjoy the rest of his days in peace and with love abundant.❤️

Thanking you kindly Cal for sharing this story❤️.
