My Two Cents: Case Closed

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN -  I was the victim of a random assault two weeks ago.

While walking to dinner in Nashville, I was confronted “face to face” by a homeless man.  He was EXTREMELY drunk.

So,instead of just walking past him, or sidestepping him, I decided to let my ego overload my good judgement.  I told him to “step off” and he punched me in the face.

So many of us have been single parents and know what it feels like to do without to provide for our kids. And let’s not forget all the discussions this year about downsizing at Fort Campbell and in Clarksville, we never know what the future holds for any of us.

Prove It Clarksville: Day 14: Passing the Baton

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Sunday was my last “official” day of standing. There’s so much I’ve learned from this experience that I’ll probably be writing these blogs for awhile, if that’s okay with you. After all, the journey isn’t over—it’s really just beginning.

So now I pass the baton to those of you who do care and are ready to prove it. This was never about me making a personal statement but about awakening our community and showing you that, together, we can make a difference and address poverty the right way.
