Teen robs social worker at knifepoint in the Bronx

Teen robs social worker at knifepoint in the Bronx

This incident actually happened to Julio Diaz in 2008. It was reported at that time on the StoryCorps program on NPR. Recently StoryCorp teamed with Upworthy and turned Julio’s story into an animated video for the #WhoWeAre series. The moral of Julio’s story sounds very familiar, treat others as you would like to be treated.

This story was published on HuffPost, Man’s Unexpected Reaction To Teen Who Held Him Up At Knifepoint Retold In Powerful Video.

Powerful, profound presence.

Love this- a great example of Sunday’s Gospel – “come up higher”

Jay Croft

Enjoyed the video, but is it really necessary to use “like” every time dialogue is introduced?

Yes, I’m a genuine Old Curmudgeon.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
