It's truly heartbreaking to see and hear about how so many of our brothers and sisters in the community have fallen on hard times and in some cases, have nowhere to live, nowhere to sleep, nothing to eat, nothing to use to keep warm.
On Wednesday evening, several groups including the Ocean County Homeless Prevention and Assistance Coalition and Ocean's Harbor House are hosting the Ocean County Homeless Persons Memorial Service to remember those who have passed away.
I was in New York City walking up Varick Street to my subway stop when I saw a young homeless man. He was standing near the stairs to the subway in winter with no shirt, hugging himself with tears running down his cheeks. He was crying and screaming out loud to anyone who would listen, “don’t you see me? I’m hungry and I’m cold…don’t you see me?”
