Miguel

Tragic and common are the best words to describe Miguel’s story. Aside from being homeless, he is struggling with serious health and legal issues. I first met Miguel about an hour before I talked to Willy, which is a little over two weeks ago now. Unconsciously (or maybe a little consciously), I delayed revisiting this video. This was not an easy interview. Miguel is disabled and has severe health issues. I could hardly stand the smell of being close to him and I could literally feel his sadness.
