One of our team members and his wife went out to the Rez this weekend to take a load of coats, hats, socks and shoes to the kids on the Reservation. I just got a call from them and the news is not good.
Hammer, everybody's little buddy, is living in a car with his brother Damian. I can't stand it. I really can't. How will they even survive the winter?
And one of the men we have gotten to know has Psoriasis of the liver, lung cancer, and his kidneys are failing.
It seems like every year we get to know someone and the next time we go back they are no longer there. I've read and have been told that the only place in the Western Hemisphere with a lower life expectancy is Haiti. I believe it.
