After a broken marriage, Roshad “lost it”. He found it hard to deal with the emotions and started to drink. His car broke down. Roshad ran into the wrong people at the wrong time and was robbed. He lost everything and ended up homeless.

Roshad is homeless in Traverse City, Michigan. He has been off and on the streets for the last eight years. Last night he was lucky to sleep on a friends floor.

Roshad’s first wish is that homelessness would end. He feels that the money our government spends on war is unnecessary and better use would be to take care of our people here.
