Quotes from Streets: Standing Tall

“Stand tall, don’t you fall oh, don’t go and do something foolish,” Burton Cummings, 1976

“Hey, where you been? Aren’t you working now?” Streetgirl asks the younger panhandler who she hasn’t seen for a few months.

“I lost the job, my home burned down, and my Dad died after being diagnosed with stage four cancer; a blessing in the sense that he didn’t suffer long.” With sadness in her eyes she described being “so depressed”. Back now, ready to humble her-self once again in order to survive. To stand tall and “keep on going”.

All Streetgirl could offer the other was a hug. Such is life!
