James Moss and his son, Zhi
In October, James Moss moved to Denver from New York with his 1-year-old son, Zhi, in search of a better life. A friend offered him a place to stay and a job opportunity, but shortly after arriving, things took a turn and both his housing and job were gone.
“It seemed like everything I was trying to do was falling apart,” Moss told KDVR.
Days after learning that he was homeless, and while searching for a shelter, Moss had a chance meeting with Leon Logothetis, a motivational speaker, whose viral movement, #GoBeKind, promotes random acts of kindness.
Logothetis, with camera crew in tow, approached Moss to interview him about kindness. Moss began talking about his recent experiences.
“Everything I do is for him,” Moss said of his son. “The reason I made this move is for him. To be in a peaceful place, the mountains, I want him to experience things that I missed growing up.”
Moss told Logothetis that his new move had been tough but that he believed his recent setbacks were all part of a divine plan.
“You have to be brought down to your humblest point so you can appreciate other things that are waiting for you,” he told Logothetis.
