What do you fear the most?

Fear? Hatred. Hatred. The people...I’m almost sixty years old. I need help more than anybody, and everybody is getting help but me. I’m not racial, but there’s people out here that never worked a day in their life. THEY HAVEN’T WORKED A DAY IN THEIR LIFE AND THEY’RE GETTING SOCIAL SECURITY, MAN!

I CAN’T. I DON’T KNOW WHY. I ONLY GOT ONE EYE.
You know about my leg.

I just want to hurt dude. Real bad....I don’t know what to do.
If the people that run this thing can’t help me, where am I going to get help.

I LIVE UNDER A F***ING BRIDGE. WHAT DAMAGE CAN I DO? Nothing.

“VA is committed to ending Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015. No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home. The entire department has put its energy and resources into ending Veteran homelessness. VA's programs provide individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Still, VA cannot do it alone. Organizations and individuals in communities across the country are integral to providing services to Veterans and spreading the word about the resources VA provides to end and prevent homelessness among Veterans.”
