His name is Michael. I always see him on the side of the road here asking for help, and I finally decided to ask if I could take some photos of him. He said yes so I gave him $5 and started shooting. As I was taking photos, he told me his story. To briefly explain it, he was employed for over 30 years with a warm house and bed to sleep in. He broke his hip in an accident (as you can see his cane) and could not pay for his surgeries. He lost both his home and his job, and now he struggles to eat and sleeps in the back of a pickup truck that his mother gave to him that is completely paid for. He was a very sweet person and I can’t imagine this happening to someone like him. After hearing his story, I felt very grateful for all the things I have. Trust me, I take lots for granted and I constantly work on that. So please everyone who sees this, try to never take anything for granted because you could lose it easier than you could imagine.
