We sit in our easy chair by a warm fire congratulating ourselves at the New Year for our stock portfolio’s brilliant performance and the low national jobless numbers. But Troy Clarkson breaks up the party with his important story “Even ‘Me’ Could Be Homeless,” reminding us there is different story among some of our neighbors.

If you missed the story, please find a way to read it. He writes a very personal story of his past and of an organization I, perhaps we, need to learn more about: Belonging To Each Other, and their efforts to make a dent in what remains an insidious homelessness problem, even here in Falmouth.
