Brian

Brian has been without a home for the last 39-years. A Vietnam-era veteran who has recently discovered he is HIV-positive, he feels like he is still trying to find his way through life.

Now, he is experiencing homelessness and recovering from heroin addiction in Des Moines, Iowa, and he laments being 54-years old and trying to reassemble his life. He longs to go back to school and write self-help books.

Given three wishes, Brian would ask for a good life, peace in the world, and that the woman he loves wouldn’t drink so much and become angry with him.

It’s encouraging to meet a man with hopes stacked so high. At the same time, it’s disheartening to wonder if adversity is stacked just a little bit higher.
