It isn’t the first time and certainly not the last when firefighter Jamie Cashion reached out to help a stranger.
Cashion ended up on the side of the road in the bitter cold, he says he fulfilled the purpose of God when he did so. I’ve been led a direction,” Cashion said. “That’s all it is. You can either believe or not believe.”
The incident happened when a mutual friend in Fort Worth asked for a ride to work, on the way, he saw a homeless man limping down the street. “And I said, ‘Hey brother, are you OK?’ And he goes, ‘No, I’m trying to get to my van.’ I said get in, it’s really, really cold, and he said I’ve got frostbite on my leg.”
Cashion gave that man a ride and later found two others out in the cold and took them to a shelter. “So when I was done with that, in my mind, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s people that stay in these conditions,’” Cashion said. “I just can’t turn a blind eye when people are freezing.”
The next morning again, Cashion was back, caring for Fort Worth’s homeless, he put out a call for help and soon people showed up with coffee, breakfast and some even took those with a frostbite to get treatment. “There’s a lot of good people out there,” Cashion said. “We’ve got some good ones in Fort Worth, Texas.”
Jamie Cashon has a heartwarming message for all of us, “The brightest stars are those that shine for others and I love that quote,” Cashion said. “It’s my job to go out and shine for these people that can’t.”
