Promoting rapid sheltering of unsheltered & unprotected women.


Under the Same Sun

...And a lot of people say that you smell bad, that you were dirty with a lot of germs or you may have a contagious disease...

I saw a strong woman trying to find food, drugs or alcohol who cares or whatever she needs to survive this ugly world.

I thought about your story.

What made you walk under the sun and what made you challenge the traffic?

Did you think that a car can't hit you? 

Did you think that you can't die?

People called you "crazy", "a thief"...

I called you a warrior.
It is so hot...

Summer can't be fun for those who don't know where they are going to be in the fall.
Asking for money is not a crime when you have a hundred 
tales to tell everyone;

so see you at the same time,

every day under the same sun.
