He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother: 20th April 2018


On the street it’s every man for himself, right?

Well, no. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Gruff kindness and quiet comradeship between the homeless men and women is something we often observe.

We thought we would share some of the things we’ve witnessed in a series of weekly posts. Here’s the fourth…

…when a young, pregnant woman came over dizzy and sick one night as she walked home, three street sleepers were on it. They carefully sat her down, wiped her forehead, got her water and fussed over her like three midwives. She got a telling off for wearing such high heels and advice about eating more low carb snacks. All men, all a bit intimidating to walk past normally. All fathers in another life…

Small moments, easily missed but proving that life can take literally everything from you – except your humanity.
