Terry

I met Terry on a rainy day in Nashville. He once owned a landscaping business and made over $125,000 yearly. But then he went through a horrible divorce.

You can tell by the character of his face that Terry has been on the streets for some time. He has survived thirty-three years of homelessness.

After getting out of the Marines he started to travel. He says traveling gets into your blood.

You may see an old man that probably has had too much to drink. What I see is a Vietnam Era Vet, who is a kind man, doing the best he can to forget the madness of his past life and present situation.

As the saying goes – before you judge someone, walk a mile in his shoes. Alcoholics are real people and everyone has a story.
