Powerful. Thank you sharing that with us.
Glad to see we had the same reaction, Sal. I was thinking about going to see Steve Earle next month but after watching "invisible" a couple of times I think I'd rather give the $40 ticket price to an agency helping the lost souls among us.Anyone have a recommendation? (As for me, no religious charities and not an advocacy group. I'm thinking direct health and/or housing services.)Anyone with me?
Thank you. Wow indeed. Love Steve.
It's ain't no Another Day In Paradise........
He keeps getting better. This reminds me of our son David, whose dorm is on 15th St. He has befriended many of the homeless in the Union Square area, knows their names and their stories, and has been bringing them food, blankets and socks over the past few months when he is unable to convince them to come with him to the Beth Israel ER or to the nearby shelter. I'm going to forward this link to him.
While Bruce and others may speak for the 99%, Steve Earle has become the voice of the sub culture of the American Dream. Sick, homeless and invisible are kept visible by Earle over the last half decade or more.I don't know about you, but not only was that video riveting, but it made me stop to think how difficult would it be to stop, make some eye contact and say hello? In all seriousness, there for but the grace of god, go we.If those few coins go to the person self medicating, who can blame them. They live in a society that calls them worthless and does not believe in giving them any assistance. Hey, we're still a country of "Christian" values, as long as I get to keep mine and the hell with you.
@Ken D - local food bank? Seems to work for Bruce.
