This article was written by a friend of the LACW community, Kenny, who comes for our free breakfasts and lunches daily. From his composure, kindness, and lucidity, I venture he has not recently, if ever, abused drugs or alcohol, and unlike many of the guests we serve, I feel completely safe around him. At one point, he was homeless. He may still be, or he may live in a low-priced Skid Row hotel these days. Either way, he has been (or still is) one of the people he is writing about.
