Beyoncé avait fait beaucoup parler d’elle avec le titre Sorry, mais son auteure cachait une bien triste histoire. Diana Gordon, qui a écrit les paroles du tube, avait en effet perdu de vue son frère depuis seize ans. Ce n’est que le 19 décembre dernier qu’elle l’a enfin retrouvé, par hasard, assis à un arrêt de bus de Los Angeles, non loin de chez elle.

Comme elle le confie sur son compte Instagram, elle regardait « sur le bas-côté de la route » quand elle a vu « un sans-abri assis à l’arrêt de bus avec ses deux cageots ». Elle a reconnu son frère. « Ces dernières années, j’avais accepté le fait que nous ne le retrouverions jamais. Dans mon cœur, je lui avais fait mes adieux. Los Angeles a une population de près de 10 millions d’habitants. Comment est-ce qu’il s’est retrouvé assis seul à un arrêt de bus à quelques kilomètres de chez moi ? », confie-t-elle, très émue.

Hi friends, family, loved ones, and anyone who kindly takes the time to read this post. You have my sincere gratitude . A few days ago I experienced a true miracle. I FOUND MY BROTHER WHO HAS BEEN MISSING THE LAST 16 YEARS. He's ALIVE!!!!!!!! The last few days have been an emotional roller coaster. As pulled to side of the road and laid eyes on the homeless man sitting at the bus stop with only his 2 crates, my heart was beating, the tears had already begun to pour down my face . You see, after the first decade went by, I lost hope of ever finding him. These last few years, I accepted the fact that we were never going to find him. In my heart I had put him to rest . Los Angeles has a population of nearly 10 million people. How is it that he was sitting alone at a bus stop less than a few miles from my home? His memory is fragmented. His spirit defeated. He has only had his own thoughts to comfort him during this long stretch of time and because of that, a form of mental illness has set in.In fact, now that I have spent several days caring for him in my home and interacting with him, he truly seems to be stuck in a child like state. I asked what he had been doing all these years and his one reply was, "SURVIVING." In the last few days, while working on gaining his trust, I have made countless calls to hospitals, counselors, social workers and friends to figure out the next steps. What has become apparent is that it is going to take a lot of care, time and nurturing to once and for all show him that he is not alone and that he is loved and worth loving.😔UPDATE: due to to the unsolicited press publishing stories about David's miracle, There has been a wave of love and support but also sadly, internet trolls have also brought negativity into something wildly positive,amazing and beautiful . I have decided Gofundme is no longer the best way to raise money for my brother on a public platform. Everything I do, I do in love. I'm a young woman who will always do the best I can for my family. Thank you to so many of you for your prayers love and support 🌹🙏🏾. D

Son frère ne l’a pas immédiatement reconnue. « Sa mémoire est fragmentée, explique-t-elle. Son esprit est défaillant. Il n’a eu que ses propres pensées pour le réconforter durant tout ce temps et à cause de cela, il a développé une maladie mentale. En fait, maintenant que j’ai passé plusieurs jours à prendre soin de lui chez moi et à interagir avec lui, il semble être coincé dans un état infantile. »

L’auteure a lancé une campagne sur GoFundMe afin de récolter des fonds pour prendre en charge son frère à 100 % et lui offrir l’aide médicale dont il a besoin. « Ces derniers jours, pendant que je travaillais à gagner sa confiance, j’ai passé de nombreux appels aux hôpitaux, à des conseillers, à des travailleurs sociaux et des amis pour trouver quelles sont les prochaines étapes à suivre », a-t-elle ajouté. Comme le précise  Billboard, elle a engagé une démarche également afin de devenir son tuteur légal pour prendre toutes les décisions importantes le concernant.
