Being alone has to be the most terrible part of poverty. This homeless man was taking a nap in Centennial Park in Nashville, TN.

In the Tugging at my Heartstrings photo essay.

    Sad and happening too often. One in every six Americans are considered poor, yet our government deems it necessary to support other countries first.

    Heartbreaking, gutwrenching photo, Debbie. There's NO EXCUSE for this in America where so many people are filthy rich. There has to be a way to help these helpless people. We are all one paycheck away from this poor man's situation!

    Think it's the untied shoelace, that gets me right in the gut. No one to care for him, no one to talk to him, no one to invite him in. Yes it is truly an emotional image. Debbie this is one powerful photo.

    Gary Cole and Patty Cross see it clearly thanks to your image, and the rest of the comments point out that we must all work together in our humanity and in documenting the truth in order to change the insensitive nature of authority that allows this inhumanity to occur to our fellow beings.
