This group of homeless men were sitting on a closed off street in downtown Detroit. The one on the ground is paralyzed from the waist down. His friend is sitting in his wheelchair as he props his head on the curb as if there was a pillow beneath him.
“I was in an accident while at work which placed me in a wheelchair,” he said. He went on to tell me that he lost his job the same month along with losing his wife to divorce. Those three combined items placed him on the street several years ago.
Another man on the street said to me, “We are starving and haven’t had anything to eat in the past day.” Without another word I picked up ten hamburgers for them to enjoy on a cold January day.
