The Unlikely Hero: Still Homeless

The unlikely hero

More details emerge about the car accident that occured the other day:
Authorities have released few other details about the crash, which brought chaos to the stretch of Castro Street just south of Market Street. Those who witnessed the accident stopped at the scene Friday to share stories and grapple with lingering images of what they'd seen. Some of them had tried in vain to save the life of the BMW driver.
The man in the picture (Dane Johnsten) above deserves a medal, in my book. Why he is homeless and destitute is another problem that our nation has yet to resolve. There has to be a better way to handle the homeless situation if such a heroic individual is left to founder on our nations streets.
