Learning about this reality is an important part of understanding it. Remembering that statistics represent real people is a vital part of wanting to do something about it. We need to do more than stand aside and shake our heads, grateful it isn’t us.
Stranger Helps Evicted 90-Year-Old Veteran Buy Back Home in Time for Holidays
Johnnie Hodges went home today. The 90-year-old World War II veteran had been evicted from his house on a stretcher this summer after falling behind on the mortgage because he'd been caring for his mortally ill wife. He returned in fantastic style, in time for Veterans Day next week. People helped him raise $110,000 through a GoFundMe account set up for him before the Nov. 5 deadline.
