Homeless man gets to play violin again after orchestra group replaces stolen instrument
Music can be a passion for people regardless of their life circumstances.
Mark Landry of Montreal is a prime example; he is a homeless man who regularly played his violin in the city's metro transit system.

But he tells the CBC that he woke up one morning to find the instrument missing and said to himself, "OK, I gotta go through the lower level of poverty, which is to live without my violin."
A resident then posted a message on his behalf on Facebook; the hope was that someone might have an extra one to give him.
Members of the Orchestre Métropolitain heard about the story and arranged to purchase a violin from a local store which offered it to them at a discounted price.
When Landry first saw the instrument coming his way, the first words he said were reportedly, "God bless you."
He then promised to begin playing it immediately.
