Last Week...


My roommate last week asked me about how I feel about Seattle's homeless. I said I think it's sad, but really, what can I do to help? She suggested helping and raising awareness in a way I hadn't thought of before. We would go around town and asking homeless people questions and taking their photographs in exchange for food or money. We'd write a paper on our findings with the photos to help push their interests and needs. Maybe it'll be submitted to the Seattle city council or published in the Seattle Times and then, who knows? She has a master’s degree and is working toward her PhD, so she'll do the writing and I'll do the photos. Maybe two people can make a difference.
