My 11,000th tweet... dedicated to @hardlynormal

For my 11,000th tweet & 2,817th blog post... I want to highlight the work Mark Horvath aka @hardlynormal is doing. He is currently undertaking a roadtrip across America to highlight the plight of the nation's homeless... filming as he goes for invisible people.

I dare you to watch the videos on invisible people and not be moved. The homeless are not some abstract group of people... but sons & daughters, mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, just like you and me. What Mark does so well is give the folks he meets the opportunity to speak... and lets them speak... in doing so he demonstrates the humanity that we take away when we abstract them.

For this... and for the work you do... I salute you Mark... you are a hero!
