(Before It's News)

MUNFORD, Tn. – Sayid Farzat hit a rare stroke of luck on Monday when he purchased a Powerball ticket on a whim from a gas station in Munford, Tennessee. “I just thought I’d try it out,” he told FOX 13 Memphis, adding, “It only cost me two dollars.”

Sayid, a twenty-four year-old Syrian refugee, arrived in the United States less than ten days ago after finally being approved for entry. Sayid and his cousin Nizar had been on a waiting list for more than a year. The cousins fled the Syrian city of al-Raqqa in early 2014, leaving behind more than a dozen family members who, at the time, believed an end to the brutal civil war, which has engulfed the country since 2011, was on the horizon.
