Awesome person and atheist activist Serah Blain has taken to the streets, literally. She will be living as a homeless person to raise money for a local Women's shelter.
Awsomely, she will be blogging her experiences. Awesomelier, her first posts are up.
I slept in the parking lot again last night, which went fairly well, with the exception of one of the police officers refusing to shake my hand when I introduced myself because of his concern about MRSA, TB, bed bugs, etc. It was an understandable concern, but also shocking to go from participating in a world where people seek my touch to a world where people avoid it. I can’t describe the feeling. Shame, maybe? I don’t know.
