It was not your average police call. An odd report of loud crying was what prompted four officers to arrive at this Rome apartment. Inside they found 84-year-old Jole and her 94-year-old husband, Michele. The crying appeared to be from watching TV.
It was the news and Jole had asked Michele the question of why there was so much hate in the world. There was no answer to the question, and the two both broke out in tears. Very loud crying continued, to the point where police were called.
urns out the couple of 70 years were extremely lonely. No one ever visits them. Their only friend was the TV set.
Officers proceeded to then do something amazing. Cook them a meal. It was a simple plate of spaghetti with butter and Parmesan, but the act was about as complex and compassionate as it gets.
