Mark

I met Mark in the suburbs–another victim of the Detroit economy.

With a checkered past, Mark is unable to find employment, and he spends most of his time looking to shelter himself from the weather, from snow to sun. Asked why he stays in Michigan, he explains that it’s because “it’s where he was born.”

It’s a solemn reminder of how important it is to have something to call “home.” Despite having that, he’s sleeping outside, and he recently had his possessions and identification stolen.

We must never give up on people. Whatever his past has held, everyone deserves a second chance. I am living proof that people do change.

Let’s hope Mark’s future holds promise and brightness.
