5.0 out of 5 stars: Very Well Written and Enlightening, July 29, 2014
By Irish Times (Chicago, Illinois)

This review is from: Gotta Find a Home: Conversations with Street People (Kindle Edition)

I walk past homeless people as I leave the train station and head to my office every single day. Over time I have come to not even see them anymore. It is as if they are no different than the trash that litters the sidewalk. This book opened my eyes. The writing was superb and the author did a good job telling these people’s tales. It was at times heart wrenching but yet still uplifting to see that despite their lot in life most seem to still have a good outlook on life. Some of those stories were pretty funny too, nice to see that they can still see the humor in things.

I cannot imagine what it must be like to not know where your next meal is coming from or where I am going to sleep. This book brings back their humanity to people like me and hopefully I am a better person for it.

 

Writing about the homeless and helping the homeless, has given my life a purpose that it didn’t have before. Documenting their stories will, I hope, introduce them to the public in a non-threatening way. Some panhandlers look intimidating, but…

  1. Most of us fight obstacles to make a living. It seems that these stories will tell of lost opportunities and the consequences that followed. Perhaps an eye opener will open our hearts wider to support and comfort someone we would have overlooked.
    I’m going to buy the book. How about you?

      I love your blog. We share the same organization problem. At your suggestion “I am motivated to start cleaning my corners right now!”
