This Incredible Time-Lapse Shows Us How Dignity And Respect Can Change A Man

Ray Flores Curator:
There are more than 60,000 veterans homeless in America. We are not going to reduce that number with superficial changes and quick fixes. But what struck me about this time-lapse video is how treating someone with a little dignity and respect could change not only the man but how we see and feel for him.
ORIGINAL: By Rob Bliss Creative and Dégagé Ministries. If you know or see a veteran who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, call 1-877-4AID-VET (877-424-3838). That's a 24/7 Department of Veterans Affairs hotline to help them.

Disclaimer: I used to work for the VA but still believe in its focus on ending veteran homelessness.
