Prove It Clarksville: Day Four: Lessons Learned

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – I got off to a good start this morning: I woke up, wrote a bit, and then caught the bus to my street corner for the day (at Madison Street and Memorial Drive).

I just had a thought: when I was a kid, I spent a lot of time standing in the corner, and now I’m standing on the corner. Some things just make you go hmm.

Well, you’ll be glad to know I didn’t have to buy a flashlight because two sweet ladies each brought me one—one is bigger, so I can use it in my camp, and the other is smaller and will fit in my backpack.

Political Transparency

 

Election 2014Clarksville, TN – As it is with most political elections, sooner or later a candidate tries to defeat an opponent by using the opponent’s past to tarnish his/her credibility. Because I believe in putting all cards on the table and because I want the community to know who I am as a person, I would like to share with you how I became the person I am today.

Like most of us, I had to go through tough times, challenges, and deal with the consequences of poor decisions I made in the past. But I believe that God allowed these things to happen to help me become a better person and be able to help others that would cross my path in the future. So, having said that, here is my story:
