Not long after I started blogging, I developed a readership. And some of these readers are still following this blog today. One such reader is Morgan Brown. Morgan is fairly unique in that he too has been homeless. Even before I started this blog, he had a website. Now he blogs too. He writes about his own experiences of being homeless, and uses his internet presence as a means to advocate for the homeless and people will mental illnesses.
Over the years,things have gotten slowly better for Morgan, as his own popularity has grown. For a while now, he has been able to secure decent Winter shelter, although during the Summer months he has had to sleep outside.
For a while Morgan has been looking into housing. And today he will be moving into an apartment of his own. He certainly deserves a round of applause.
It is not easy for a chroncially homeless person to move off the streets and into what is considered normal housing. Being homeles is not easy to get used to, but once you do, then leaving homelessness is just as difficult. Being homeless becomes one’s comfort zone. Change, even change for the better, is not always easy. But he has done it. And I’m very glad for him.
