Homeless in Nashville

Homeless in Nashville

Imagine being homeless and the weather is turning cold.  You are hungry, broke, nearly broken, and have no place to hide.  There are predators on the street that will beat you or worse if they come across you… no place to hide.  You find a grate in the sidewalk, it is somewhat warm, but very exposed and close to the traffic but you lie down… no place to hide.

Traffic noises assault you with squeals, honks and roaring engines, but you are so very very tired and so you sleep… no place to hide.  Along comes a cop car and the officer  hits the siren, again and again and again until you finally realize he is sounding it for you and so you rise up to leave, and still no place to hide.

Such is the life of the homeless in Nashville and countless other places.
