Rachel, I can't tell you how profoundly moved I have been by your words and photos from the immersion; you made me feel as if -- oh, thank God it was only "as if" -- I was in some way experiencing it too. And know that as much as those 24 hours changed you, your recounting of this experience has changed those of us who witnessed it through your eyes. You indeed helped us see the face of poverty.

Rachel

Connie, thank you so much for your kind words. It was my hope, like you said, to "put a face on poverty" by sharing my own experiences, and knowing that I was able to do that for at least one person has touched my heart. And helped to make a little more sense of that 24 hours I spend out on the street. Thank you.

Rachel, I'm with you. Even though I knew we had the option at every moment to opt out and return to the comfort of not being homeless, the whole thing penetrated in a very real way my ability to ignore the problem. I keep thinking about Eddie, and the rest of the community we were a part of and continue to be forever intertwined with. See you soon.
