I met Gino this past fall on the streets of Detroit. The night before he slept in an abandoned building. If you haven’t been to Detroit a large percentage of the city is vacated properties. It’s very sad!

Gino lost his house five years ago and he says he has been homeless now for three years.

I like Gino. He seems like a kind gentle man. I know he says they are going to make it. But the truth is we must work extra hard to rebuild neighborhoods that have been destroyed by poverty. No one should have to live homeless in this great country of ours! No one!

    Sweet man.  Good attitude.  All we can do is do the best we can and know we’ll make it. Praying for him.

    These stories break my heart. Chronic poverty is a disease that slowly steals a person’s life, health, and happiness away from them. It’s good to see that he has such a positive attitude but it’s hard knowing that in a broken city like Detroit this poor man has so few options to improve his situation.
