By / / From Ray Flores at Upworthy: “There are more than 60,000 veterans homeless in America. We are not going to reduce that number with superficial changes and quick fixes. But what struck me about this time-lapse video is how treating someone with a little dignity and respect could change not only the man but how we see and feel for him.” Thanks to all those who have served and continue to serve. If you know of a veteran who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, call the 24-hour Department of Veterans Affairs hotline: 1-877-4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for help. Via.
