This is Monte Smith, he is 35 years old and lives in Tent City 3 in Seattle. He has been homeless now for two years. He came out from Detroit where he had been a machinist, but now, in Tent City, he has become an activist for the homeless. When you talk with Monte it is obvious that he cares about the people there, that he is putting his heart into making it the best place it can be, that he is proud to be a part of this community. When I was leaving, he came back up to me and said, “Hey, can I send you one of my poems?” I have no doubt it will be beautiful!
