Now is the time to grasp the concept of what it means to be human and this most interesting of times. particularly as a person and a man of color especially as an African American man in Boston Massachusetts in 2020.not only a resident of Boston Massachusetts but one that had to experience the world of homelessness and all the different Dynamics within the function of a subculture. in contrast to that how I became a member of the Haley house community soup kitchen that's been around since 1966 specifically geared to men that are in desperate dire straits. the most interesting part of the journey is ironically how I was a resident or guest should I say at the pine Street inn for several years. ironically I ended up at the Haley house looking for good food or breakfast to eat. Amazingly life is good.
