Anthony Cymerys is a barber. He’s 82 years old and what you’re seeing here is what he does every Wednesday.  It may not look like much, but it is.  He brings his chair, his clippers, and a car battery to power the clippers, to a local park in Hartford. He then gives haircuts to the homeless. He says he doesn’t want the homeless to look homeless.  He doesn’t charge them a dime. All they have to do is give him a hug. Anthony was inspired to do this after hearing a sermon in church about the homeless. And ever since then he’s been going to the park once a week. He is very popular.  People line up on park benches waiting their turn. Anthony says, “I love these guys. That’s what it’s all about.”
