    Hearing the personal experiences of two individuals in our local community who have been or currently are homeless was a real eye-opener for me. John's excellent presentation on the statistics and realities of the ways that our homeless friends are profiled and targeted daily moved me to advocate more specifically on behalf of my homeless sisters and brothers.
