For people reading this blog entry that have not read my previous entries on the homeless, I encourage you to read Homeless Project Background. It will give you some background on my project. Briefly, I have made a commitment to give $20 each week to a homeless person and minimally ask their name and where they are from.
I have been working just with Ron lately. I seem to care for him as a person now. I was talking with him a few days ago and I could barely stand the putrid odor. I was gagging as I talked with him about his life in Texas and his stint in the Army. I kept looking at his eyes and feeling so very sad. I just bought a small video recorder and am going to interview him on tape so all of you can see him. I should have the tape in a week or so. I hope he is OK with it. I really do want you to see him.
