Yannick’s orch replaces a homeless man’s stolen violinmain
Here’s a heartwarming story from the hard streets of Montreal, Canada.
Mark Landry, a homeless man, woke yesterday to find his violin had been stolen. He played the instrument on the streets to stay alive and sane.
Mark created a placard ‘violon voler’. A passerby snapped it and posted the pic on social media.
