I have to warn you that this video is hard to watch. Sometimes people just ‘give up’ and stop fighting. I believe that may be the case with Sandra. It’s called ‘learned helplessness’ and I see it in all walks of life. But under this bridge in New Orleans, my heart broke.

Sandra has lived here for a year. She has made herself believe homelessness is not that bad, just a little boring.

Sandra didn’t have any wishes!
