Beautiful People: To Sleep A Night In His BedBeautiful People is driven by brave warriors humble enough to tell their stories. It gives hope to the hopeless and heals our blindness, exposing misconceptions about the down and out – beautiful people living on the fringe.

Monday, I went for a walk with my wheel chair bound friend from the meal site. As we walked, the place where a man sleeps under a porch on top of rocks. I saw his dirty wet sleeping bag. We walked one more block down into my friend’s back yard and there, on a dirty mattress exposed to all the elements, I saw another friend sleeping with the filthy rags he uses to cover himself. When he awoke and saw me he was mortified. All I could think to tell him was that dinner had already begun at the meal site as I grasped for something to cut the tension. I will never forget that moment.
