In Berlin, after World War II, money was short, supplies were tight, and it seemed like everyone was hungry. At that time, people were telling the tale of a young woman who saw a blind man picking his way through a crowd. The two started to talk. The man asked her for a favor: could she deliver the letter to the address on the envelope? Well, it was on her way home, so she agreed.
She started out to deliver the message, when she turned around to see if there was anything else the blind man needed. But she spotted him hurrying through the crowd without his smoked glasses or white cane. She was, naturally, suspicious, so she went to the police.
When the police paid a visit to the address on the envelope, they made a gruesome discovery, three butchers had been harvesting human flesh and selling it to the starving people.
And what was in the envelope the man gave to the woman? A note, saying simply “This is the last one I am sending you today.”
IT TOOK ME A SECOND TO REALIZE WHAT THE LETTER MEANT AND NOW IM FREAKING OUT

"…Marriage may have its ups and downs, but one Reddit user has reminded us of the real meaning of companionship.
After catching a virus from a bad lunch at the office, Ryan Robson was sent to the emergency room. Robson, 30, suffers from Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome, a condition that weakens his immune system.
"It should have just been a 24-hour kind of bug, but my system doesn’t handle these things like a normal person’s does,” he told The Huffington Post. Because of his condition, the trip quickly turned into a scary, week-long hospital stay.
"At one point I lost it. I tore off the monitoring cables and started panicking, then went to the bathroom and completely broke down," he said. "It feels silly, knowing that some people spend months in the hospital, but at the time I felt the closest to losing my sanity that I’ve ever been."
But frequent visits from his wife, Elizabeth, and a “mini date” in the hospital cafeteria brought him back from the brink…”
"… When Robson finally returned home, his wife had a special surprise for him — a series of illustrations welcoming him home…"
"…Robson posted the story to Reddit and it quickly went viral. He later admitted to HuffPost that coming home to his wife’s illustrations was an emotional moment. "I said I ‘just about teared up’ in the Reddit post, and that’s a lie. I had to walk away before I started bawling once I got to the end," he told HuffPost. "It was a big deal, to me, just to come home that Friday and have the kids give me a big hug, the animals jumping on my legs and to have my wife show me what she had been working on while I was away. She’s the best thing ever, and I’m glad that people had a chance to see that too…”
