The sign guy

A year ago, Caleb Snell was severely depressed, to the point of contemplating suicide. “I don’t have a clue what I’m doing in life,” he wrote in a Facebook post at the time. “It’s my fault I’ve lost everything I love, and that I’ll die alone. I’m haunted in my dreams, so when I sleep I get no rest.”

He shared those dark thoughts because he wanted others experiencing depression to know they weren’t alone.

If you ask him today how he’s doing, he’ll answer something like “blessed,” or “highly favored.”

Caleb has become known as “the sign guy” who often stands at the intersection of University Drive and Jordan Lane in Huntsville holding poster that read “You are loved,” or “Your life has value,” or “You’re worth more than gold,” while listening to metal in his earbuds.

I saw this guy Saturday...made my day...He is walking the walk...If more people did that, the world would be so much better...I still believe that there are more nice people than evil, but it's the evil we see and hear from..

Y'all have a great day!

1. Yep...it's very sad that some people in our society automatically hate him because he's a white male

"If more people did that, the world would be so much better...I still believe that there are more nice people than evil, but it's the evil we see and hear from.."

2. They hate him more because he is a born again Christian.

We see that on this very board, daily.
