Rita

Rita is a kind and gentle woman who has a strong faith in her God. She has lived on the streets of Los Angeles for a few months now. The night before she slept on a bus.

As I was walking up, I noticed Rita and a man in a conversation. What I didn’t know until I asked them both if they wanted socks is that the man was trying to sell socks to Rita. Obviously, this man didn’t make a sale. He looked a little upset so I gave him a pair of socks, too.

Rita ended her third wish asking that everyone treat her as a human!
