40 years. That’s how long Butch has been homeless.

It began in 1969. Butch was just a teenager living in Cleveland, Ohio. His family fell apart, and he became homeless. Today, he is confined to a wheelchair. He begs for money to eat everyday. He says he’s doing the best he can, given the circumstances.

Still – I can’t get this number out of my head. 40 years homeless.

Shame on us. We can do better.

    Thank you for InvisiblePeople.tv. I have truly been touched and saddened by what is posted on your site, but it’s real and true and I think that is why homelessness goes ignored. Then people who do have homes and food don’t have to come too close to the reality that things are bad. It removes me from Butch because I am not physically experiencing it with him. You have touched me as has Butch. I will try harder to do what I can to help as much as I can. Thank you
