In recent months, I’ve been deeply moved by a Story Circle Network blogging friend’s writing as she courageously brings forward her son’s long-term homelessness in California’s Bay Area. Margie Witt has written several compelling articles about her son’s journey from early rich promise in his life to his present journey on the street. She is also writing a memoir. To learn more, kindly follow this link to Margie’s recent Facebook post, This Man is My Son.
Tonight, on your local PBS station, Independent Lens is focusing on three homeless people. If you follow the link, the man you see in the photo is Margie’s son. I hope you’ll find the program on your local station (it’s at 10pm where I live in Virginia) and gain a deeper understanding of the roots of homelessness as well as considerations for what we can each do to help heal this heartbreaking problem that belongs to us all.
Should you read this post later than tonight, watch PBS listings for encore presentations.
