  1. If you really stop and think about this post, I wonder how many people sitting in this traffic mess (looks like a lot) are actually paying any attention to this dude. I wonder how many people who are on their way home for dinner are thinking….I wonder what this guy is having (if anything).

    It just strikes me that we pass people by every day and don’t even see them. Hmmmmm. I think that’s so sad.

    I just wonder how many people actually ‘see’ him there. I would imagine he would feel alittle like when I’m trying to talk to my kids and they tune me out completely…..I can’t imagine going through life with everyone just ‘tuning me out’. :o(

  2. you pretty much hit the nail on the head. this guy becomes the background….the norm….for many on their route home. people sit in their warm cars with blinders on. part of the whole reason why i started doing the drive-bys. one day, i tuned in. i noticed. i was very sad as well.

    the other half of the argument is the fact that this gentleman shows up everyday. same corner (sometimes one a little further up the road). what’s keeping him from showing up for a regular job? that’s the skeptic in me talking. i can only assume the cash he receives on a daily basis is reinforcing his return.

    it’s usually the person sitting off in the distance…laying behind a dumpster….curled up on a bench….NOT looking for money or anything….that truly truly need our help.

  3. This guy is a staple to our commute. If he’s not there, then one of he other regulars is in his place.

  4. His name is Tommy. I use to live in Mount Washington and turned left everyday at this intersection. I think about him and give him cash whenever I can. I have not heard his story, but I always remind my kids that he has one, just like anyone else. Great pictures.
