David is a kind and gentle man. My heart breaks for him. David moved to Austin, Texas, to work in construction. David lost his ID on the bus, and then someone stole his backpack with everything he owned. David survives by recycling and panhandling.
When I asked David where he was going to sleep, he said he didn’t know. I responded that’s no way to live. David said he’s not living; he’s just existing.
