“I came to the states when I was 31, and have been here eleven, almost twelve years.  My family is all in Mexico still.  I like it much better here, but it is still very hard.

I don’t look at it as being homeless.  I have everything I need.  Food comes when I need it.  I never wave a sign.  I don’t stress.  It’s not worth it.  This (holds up bible) is all that matters.  I am a very religious man.

Homeless or not homeless, what matters is that you believe in Jesus.  I am happy because I have Jesus.  So you ask what home means to me, and this is all I can say.  What I see in people is their connection to god, not whether they’re rich or poor. I don’t see myself as homeless because I have faith.”
