Jackson’s Tomb

Jackson\'s Tomb

Nashville, Tennessee

Susan at Pitcherlady continues with a fine series on the homeless of Nashville. She present a good story of a fellow named Steve, who is both homeless and ill- not a good combination to have in the U.S. health care system.

Today, she linked to a written blog called The Homeless Guy that I found to be great reading. Suicide and homelessness are both something that I couldn’t understand and empathize with when young, but now quite understand how someone could fall into those black holes.  One of his quotes:

‘Homelessness is like suicide. Both are attempts at escaping
difficult situations – situations for which there seems no other way out.’
