Shelter from the Storm
She’d probably say 'What are you doing? You shouldn’t be grieving, you should be moving on.'
Every day since I arrived here, all I have been trying to do is look for the opportunity to earn some money to send back to my family.
I realized I wasn’t firing on all cylinders. It’s like I’m not quite wired correctly, eh.
I was working a night shift, so close to homelessness myself, looking down at the mats on the floor, and thinking ‘that looks so comfortable. ’That’s when I woke up.'
I like to be positive as much as possible – to myself and others around me.
The most important thing to me is family. I would die for my kids and grandkids.
Even as a child, there was no one to take care of me.
There’s a reason I ended up here – maybe to help people cheer up and get their lives in order.
My life has always been better when I’ve had nothing; when time is what I have to give to people.
The wounded dog is smart enough to drag its broken leg back home where it can get help. I always do the opposite. I go the other way.
