Prove It Clarksville: Day Nine: Look Out, Cow

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Today was the hottest day yet.

I got to my spot (in front of the Walmart on Fort Campbell Boulevard) a few minutes after 10:00, and the temperature was already “up there.”

People had a lot of questions about what I was doing, but as I handed them my flyer that explains how to “Prove It,” I got a lot of good responses (although I also noticed that lots of folks in that part of town were super-generous even when they didn’t have a clue what I was doing).

Several people dropped off money, and a couple of young boys even donated some of their piggy bank money. And thank goodness, everyone kept bring me plenty of liquids!

The Tuesday Cafe team says, “Prove it!” (By the way, stay tuned for details about how you can stand on the corner with me next Monday.)

Prove it: Day Two: Madison Street and Sweet Tea

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Kenny York, Founder and Director of Manna Café Ministries, will be spending the next two weeks as a homeless man in an effort to bring increased awareness and compassion for the homeless. He and the Manna Café team are increasing their efforts to launch a full-time transitional shelter in Clarksville, even though homelessness is “a silent epidemic” in this fast-growing community. This is part three of his adventure.

Well, the first night out didn’t go as expected, but I survived. I got my new camp set up this morning. This one should go a little better—it’s a lot more hidden than the last one. It’s a little further from downtown than I wanted, but since it’s better hidden, it’s a good trade-off. For those who are wondering where I slept last night (being that I was evicted from my first camp), well, I did what a lot of homeless people do: I slipped inside a fence, crawled into the back of a vehicle, went to sleep, and slipped out again before anyone got there the next morning. This vehicle just happened to be the Love Bus at the Manna House. (I didn’t want to get arrested my first night out for trespassing or breaking and entering.)

Trust me, sleeping on the ground in a tent will be way more comfortable than on the floor of a bus.

My first night’s “camp.”

My first night’s “camp.”

After the 18 year old met the woman, they drove to a parking lot in the 1600 Block of Fort Campbell Boulevard. The woman then got out of the vehicle. The 18 year old was parked in the lot using his phone when the driver side door was opened and a man started punching him in the face and arms.
