Marcus - a street man I saw everyday going to work. At first I thought like others to not make eye contact and definitely not to give him money....but God worked in my heart....and I started talking to him and learning about why he was there. It's not what we think; and because of Marcus, I started looking up instead of down and having those conversations and giving. I can't submit a photo of him as he is very sensitive about his situation and not trusting of many people. But he is a human and through chance and circumstance lives in cold and uncertainty while I live in comfort and security. Since knowing Marcus I have made RAK part of my everyday life, as well as a birthday gift to myself in the 55 days leading up to my 55th birthday. I am a proud RAKtivist because of Marcus.
