I was in Calgary, Canada, this week and heard the story of a homeless man who was dying of cancer and dreamed of visiting Mardi Gras in New Orleans some day. People rallied to raise the money for this kind man to have his last wish, but he became so sick he was not able to travel. The people at the shelter he lives at then held a Mardi Gras party for him. When I was told that story my heart broke, yet I didn’t realize I was about to meet Terry.

Terry is 58 years old. He says he’s been homeless since the age of 8. Long before I started the camera Terry reminded me of my grandfather by wanting to tell stories. This video is a little longer than others, but this may be the most powerful video I’ve ever posted so please watch to the end. As I started to get emotional this very strong, proud man reminded me to not feel sorry for him.
