In the somber shadows of a busy city street, an African American homeless veteran sits, carrying the invisible weight of war's haunting memories. All the atrocities he witnessed and endured are etched deep within his soul. Clutching a weathered cardboard sign that reads, "Will work for food," he seeks solace and survival amidst the indifference of a society that turned its back on him upon his return.
The heaviness in his eyes reflects the untold stories of comrades lost and the profound isolation he feels. His trembling hands, once molded by discipline and duty, now carry the scars of neglect and unfulfilled promises. Yet, in his worn countenance, he silently battles the demons that torment him. His presence is a stark reminder of the unfulfilled obligations society owes to those who sacrificed everything. In his struggle, he embodies the forgotten voices, urging us to confront the wounds of war and stand united in providing the support and compassion that should accompany our heroes back home.
This release was originally commissioned by Wholeness Development, Inc to benefit homeless veterans in 2008.
