CAUTION: Some content may be offensive. Our Hope is you’ll get mad enough to do something.

As I watch Shawn’s story I cannot help but think of the disclaimer on the header of InvisiblePeople.tv. Shawn is homeless in Denver. He uses ‘colorful’ language that may offend some people. He is also high on heroin, and that may upset a few more.

What you need to see is a hurting young man who has grown up on the streets. Shawn has lived a hard life. Both parents were heavy drugs users so Shawn was placed in a group home at 12. He went back to his mother around 16, yet she continued to use drugs so Shawn hit the streets.

Shawn tells a very real story of life on the streets, and how the breakdown of family causes so much destruction.

I hope Shawn’s story did make you mad – mad enough to fight homelessness.
