"Powerful story, brother. In America, we treat addiction as a crime instead of a disease. That is the reason for so many injustices including the "No Food Stamps for Ex Felons.""

Before that career, I did patient care for about a dozen years. Lately, I've been writing about subjects that I have personal experience with, and these include homelessness and false…

Posted on March 5, 2017 at 10:00am 2 Comments

As of today, I've been homeless for a bit over two and a half years.
