This piece was inspired by my interaction with men in New York City’s faith-based shelters. Each night, these homeless individuals sleep on cots in churches and synagogues throughout the city. I was truly touched by their stories and wanted to create a piece that would encourage others to listen as well.
Many New Yorkers spend their days trying to avoid looking at the homeless people on our streets and subways. In this piece, Robert (one of the men I met) looks straight through the article so the reader sees a real person affected by the impersonal numbers contained in the text.
