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 every day. 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.
