“Spent the afternoon with my brothers and sisters at Tent City. We’ve had 30-50mph winds over the last few days which have destroyed several tents and made life pretty miserable for the folks living by the river. However, every time I visit I come away inspired, touched and a better person. A few weeks ago we met a young woman who just showed up and asked for tent. She was given a tent, an air mattress and a sleeping bag. Since that time she’s pretty much kept to herself except to come out of her tent to eat. She has been given a small portable heater which she uses in to keep the inside of the tent above freezing.”
