Homeless Nashville

How do you describe being homeless? Growing up in a middle class family, doing all the right things. Then one day, you are on the street.What Happens now?

Name:
Location: Nashville, Tennessee, United States

Now that I am no longer homeless, I still hope to help others. There are a few who truly want off the streets, out of the soup lines. Back to a "normal" way of living. Everyone who is homeless isn't a bum, nor a criminal. There are those that just need a chance. My first day as a homeless person was April 1st, 1997. From then on its been an unreal experience. Not one I would suggest anyone go thru, but one I know I have learned from. I hope in some way this blog helps you, the reader know a little about me. But more important , I hope it helps you understand a little more about homeless people in general.

I had an email from someone today that, well I felt I had to comment on it and Hope that my comments help.
A gentleman told me his daughter, son-in-law and their baby were about to become homeless.That in itself is sad. But he also stated they were taking it as a joke.
To these two people and anyone who may believe being homeless is "easy street" . Come spend a week with me. 24 hours a day , for 7 days. I will show you "easy street".
Please, don't look on this as a light-hearted affair. I see so many young people who believe that in a year or two they will go back to the real world.
I hope they can, but I have to tell you the longer you are here, the harder it is to get back to a normal way of living. And living on the street is NOT the place for a child.
Please, do anything you can to stay where you are. Seek out those who love you and let them help.
