The photos that follow present images of men I've met over the past several weeks at "the Corner: (use the Search tool at upper left to read more about this special location out near CitySquare's new Opportunity Center).
I post them here without comment. They are great people, many wounded, broken and struggling. They are fathers, sons, brothers, unemployed, working, veterans and more.
Each has a story.
Each brings a personal and spiritual force to the conversations we enjoy.
None, none should be dismissed out of hand.
All deserve respect.
These images could be multiplied in number by a factor of 20 or more.
Meet some of my friends.
