With thirty years of experience in working to break the cycle of homelessness, here I am, the newest blog on the block, plugging away at my first blog post. Why should anybody be interested in what I have to say about homelessness and the issues that create and perpetuate our national disgrace?
- Because I spent almost every weekday afternoon for five years as a volunteer helping the “street people” in Memphis, Tennessee?
- Because they changed my life? Gave it meaning and focus and direction? Sent me on a wildly improbable journey? Led me to live out my dreams, always tempered with a touch of survivor’s guilt because we lost so many to the concrete killing fields of homelessness?
- Because former President Bill Clinton, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Fred Karnas, my all-time favorite national advocate for homeless people, are all in my corner, have just endorsed my work and wished me well with my just-published book, The Concrete Killing Fields, One Woman’s Battle to Break the Cycle of Homelessness?
