‘Oh Carol’ part 2 – Length 05:46

In Part 2, we learn that being arrested would turn Carol’s life around.  But she still has many more street experiences, perspectives and secret places to sleep rough to share with us.

“Sometimes it’s easy to walk by because we know we can’t change someone’s whole life in a single afternoon. But what we fail to realize it that simple kindness can go a long way toward encouraging someone who is stuck in a desolate place.” 

– Mike Yankoski
