Prove It Clarksville: Day 11: Can You Believe It?

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Extra extra, read all about it!

Everybody’s talking about it: there was a couple standing in front of the mall with signs today; people were stopping to give them water, food, and even money—can you believe it? One lady even stopped to take their picture.

And then about 4:00pm this afternoon, they gathered all their stuff, put it into a black car, and drove away. But wait—that’s not all—someone also saw them at a nearby grocery store buying sushi, can you believe it?

Kroger sushi isn’t too bad in a pinch.

Prove It Clarksville: Day Five: The Faces of Homelessness

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Hi all, Vicki here. Last night, Kenny (like most homeless folks) took the opportunity to work a side job and make a few dollars, so he got back to his camp very late—and then he had to get up super-early to get to his bus stop on time.

So he didn’t have a chance to blog about yesterday’s “adventures,” but he’ll catch up tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s something he wrote the other night while at camp:

The face of homelessness has changed over the past few years.

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.
