This is our friend “Southside Shorty.” Yesterday we were able to provide him with a few meals and transportation to a local hospital.
Southside is 68 years old and says he’s been homeless ever since he was a child. Trying to survive on the streets is all he’s ever known.
After he told us back in August he walked over 60 miles, from Anniston, Alabama to the West Georgia area, we asked him if that was the hardest part about being homeless. He said no.
“The hardest part about being homeless is when people avoid me or point and laugh. I just want to be cool and meet new people out here.”
