"I'll tell you what my husband told me when he was dying. I said, 'Mo, how am I going to live without you?'  And he said, take the love that you have for me and spread it around.'" It was a moment that moved Brandon Stanton to tears. The 29-year-old self-taught photographer is behind the hugely popular "Humans of New York" blog and now book. Brandon's willingness to approach strangers has led to some pretty amazing moments of openness, "whether it's someone telling me about their battle with cancer, or somebody even telling me how they were molested as a child," he says of many "startlingly honest revelations." To find out what special gift one of Brandon's subjects gave him, check out this episode of "Daily Shot."
