When I asked Wvlf if he is on Facebook, he pulled out his phone and added me right one the spot and to message me. This interview is a little old. I found a hard drive that I must have misplaced. Interesting that just this week, Wvlf messaged me on Facebook asking when I will be returning to St Louis.

The memory I cherish about first meeting Wvlf was a Facebook exchange we had while I was shopping in Walmart. It had rained really bad and of few of the tents in their tent camp were in really bad condition with many holes. Via social media and all of your help, we raised money to buy new tents and campaign gear. I would send a photo of a tent or a camping stove to Wvlf for approval.

He would often instruct me not to purchase the most expensive items and just get what they need. Wvlf did get into an apartment but he is back outside. It’s really awesome when a homeless person gets’s placed into housing but in many communities, there is a high percentage of people to go back to the streets!

    Often, the reason a homeless person gets a home situation is not because of employment or some kind of revenue stream. It is because they have been placed in a servitude situation. They accept it temporarily probably because their life depended on it at that moment or whatever suffering they were enduring was extreme. For example, tenting in the city in 10 degree weather without a fire, frostbite, or inadequate clothing.

    There is a group of people that exploit, oppress, and control the homeless. They prey on these people, keeping them oppressed. Sadly, these people are going to reap what they sow, much more than they can probably ever imagine, and later than when they sowed it. It makes me shudder to think of what they are sowing for themselves.
