After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

Josy Chap took her 3-year-old, Grayson, to a public park in the Bronx. As the sun began to set, Grayson started playing with an elderly woman sitting on a bench nearby.

Josy and her son sat with the 83-year-old woman, whose name was Delores, for a little while, enjoying a quiet evening outside.

It wasn’t clear what the woman’s circumstances were and if she was waiting for someone to show up, but Josy didn’t want to pry. She took a photo of Grayson befriending the elderly woman to capture the sweet and genuine moment between the two strangers.

After saying goodbye to Delores and heading home for the night, Josy received an alert on her phone.

She frequently checks her Citizen app, which tracks local crimes happening in real time.

Within seconds, Josy realized the crime alert on her phone was directly related to the exact same woman Grayson met at the park just hours before. She felt a sense of fear wash over her and immediately started to cry.

Meanwhile, Delores’ daughter was in a panic, praying for some resolution … and she was about to meet the woman she now calls her guardian angel.
