Barber Gives Homeless People Haircuts For Hugs
For people who are so used to being avoided, Anthony Cymerys is a blessing. Bushnell Park in Hartford, CT has all the typical park sounds and park sights, save for one: the buzzing of barber clippers. Cymerys (known as "Joe the Barber") is an 82-year-old retired real estate investor, who takes time out of his day to provide full-service haircuts for the homeless. All he asks for in return is a hug.
