“How old are you,” I asked. He smiled and thinking about it he responded, “About 54 or 55.” He was standing at a busy intersection in Nashville when I met him.
He told me he was from New York and hit the road at age 19. “I had a real hard life growing up as a kid… came from a broken home,” he told me. “I had to go, I became homeless on my own - by my own choice,” he said.
After a short talk I handed him a brand new 9 man tent that was given to me to give to someone who had nothing and needed something.
