‘I have a second grade education. I did construction work for twenty years and then got into driving trucks. I lost my CDL because of my medical condition and that’s why I’m homeless. But let me tell you something…I may not look like a nice person but I really am a gentle soul. I’ve been depressed as hell and I’ve thought about cutting my wrists but, you know what? When people talk to me…even if they just give me a quarter…it keeps me going. A lot of people are ornery but some are just so kind…when they talk to me and see me and understand I’m in a bad place…or if they say hello, I’m being acknowledged and I find peace when I realize that someone actually cares.’
