Your project and your photos seem perfect for an article in the Post. So if any reporters are reading this forum trying to get ideas, I hope they pick up on this one and give you a helping hand.

Default day 8 Jan 17 2010

today i passed out 8 bags , i took a picture of what i was taken on this trip , i even had an old sleeping bag to take , it was cold and rainy which gave me more of a reason to get out there today , because i diddnt want to be out even for a second in the cold rain , so i thought about walking in the shoes of a homeless man in the cold and rainy day, i even packed a trash bag to help keep themselves sheltered from the rain , i gave the sleeping bag to one of the homeless i had helped on my very first bag that i handed out witch was a water bottle and 2 oaranges with a message of hope , this time i came with a sleeping bag a pair of socks an apple a bottle of water a trash bag and a pack of peanut butter crackers, this was on thomas jefferson nw dc and mst nw dc in georgetown, the 2nd was at washington st nw dc and 24thst nw dc , the other six where at the intersection of e st nw dc and rockcreek parkway nw dc, under the bridges right around there , i passed out 6 there ,

i remember along time ago my 7th grade teacher told me that a butterfly over seas could change the dirction of the wind just by flapping its wings
i never really understood why or how till i realized that if a butterfly can have that much affect to the world than just imagine the affect we have on the world and what we could change if each of us let our wings soar
tomorrow is another day
