‘Know What I Mean?’ – Length 05:36

This story has some really hard edges to it……But being homeless also has some really hard edges to it.  To pretend that’s not the case would be denying truth.

“Most people, if you live in a big city, you see some form of schizophrenia every day, and it’s always in the form of someone homeless. ‘Look at that guy – he’s crazy. He looks dangerous.’ Well, he’s on the streets because of mental illness. He probably had a job and a home” 

Eric McCormak  – Actor

 

“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty” 

Mother Teresa
