|Here is where we sat on the ground and talked. I'll remember this spot|
- You are stronger than you think. Everything else can change in an instant. There’s not always time to plan. Sometimes, you have to react and trust in your own strength that you can power through the storm. He adapted and found out that he is stronger than he thought. He may have emotional injuries to deal with, but he has survived. He is healing. He will be better than before. As a human, know that you have that ability within you also.
- This gentleman totally reinforced my idea of who a homeless person is. Picture a homeless person in your head. Imagine how they act. Imagine how they speak. Imagine their motions. Imagine the language they used. I am very secure in saying that the imaginary character in your head is very wrong. He is no different than anyone reading this. He has just experienced a different chain of events that I would not wish upon anyone. We are merely one tragedy from being in his situation. There is no stereotype for the homeless and homeless is not a stereotype. It’s a condition. A fixable one.
