I spent the day cleaning up the van and figuring out what I can live without. I have to downsize the storage unit in order to save money. I will have to take a lot to the thrift store donation centers. While I sifted through boxes and bags, I thought about the little video I put on YouTube today.

I believe the events since August 31st have drained me more than I realized. I didn’t feel it until I saw the video play on YouTube. When riding around on the bus, I sat with a man named “Marty” who knew John very well. He said that on the night he died, John was working on a carving, and when the police shot John, Marty took that carving and hid it. It is in the hands of John’s family now. Marty went to the site his friend was killed to drum. He told me that the police have been bothering the homeless brothers and sisters for years but nobody does anything until it’s too late. Then he and his companion told me they found a body in a dumpster last night.
Wonder how long it took anybody to do something about that.
