Lonnie

I got Lonnie a burger and fries in exchange for a photograph and his life story. He told me that he had lost his vision when he was a kid because he was hit in the face by a brick while trying to break up a fight. He lost his right eye and has no vision in his left. When he was in his 20's he was sent to prison for domestic abuse charges. When he was released nobody wanted anything to do with him, and so he was left to the streets. He's 59 years old, and the only things he has to keep him going are the thoughts of his son and his faith in God. He was an excellent man, and had one of the most powerful stories I had ever heard.
