Some days, the Internet throws you a curveball and you find yourself sobbing at your desk about people you've never met. Those are the good days. This is one of those good days.

A post on Craigslist's missed connections message board has gone viral recently for its beautifully written description of love, loss, and a chance encounter that saved a troubled veteran's life. It's remarkable not only for how sweet it is, but because it's a craigslist post that isn't about selling bed-bug-infested furniture or anonymous sex. It is about anonymous romance, which is something else entirely.
