Mick and Polly spent the holidays together. He was issued an ID card, had social security, and was able now to find work. For the first time in his life, he felt like he was somebody. The kindness and warm heart of one sheriff led to a life-changing experience that touched so many. Sheriff Swalwell is to who Mick owed his gratitude.
Mick and Polly remained connected until this day. They were both able to close one dark chapter in their lives and focus on a new and bright one. Swalwell had for sure earned his good samaritan badge. He learned for himself and taught so many, that all people count, and everyone is someone’s someone.
A Man and His Guitar
Mick had very few possession's to his name. He had a guitar which he received from Sheriff Swalwell and a high school yearbook, which he never really knew why he kept. When Polly heard about the life Mick had, she was devastated.
She felt responsible for his fate. She gave him up for adoption and felt she was accountable for whatever happened after. She was overwhelmed by this reunion and knew who was responsible for it.
Mick's story changed his life, it changed Polly's life and it had an impact on Sheriff Swalwell's too. From that day onwards, he would look differently at people in the same situation Mick was in.
Homeless strays never looked the same again and he realized that each one carries a story. His eyes were wide open and his heart had expanded too.
