This candid video captured by Tyler Mann, a filmmaker from Austin, TX, features a homeless man sharing his story of how he went from being a successful working man, to being homeless and rejected by society. “The hard part wasn’t going to prison, it was getting out and trying to be part of society again.”
Many people are waking up and realizing that we are largely disconnected from each other as a society, but it’s not every day we get to hear it from the perspective of someone who is homeless, alone and literally has nothing. “You’re one in a million, you know? You’re actually sitting down and talking to me. Most people don’t give a damn.”
“This man, Obediah, changed my life overnight,” said Tyler, the filmmaker from Austin, Texas who captured this touching video:
Update: Tyler created a GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money for this homeless, aspiring musician— and over $7,000 cash was raised for Obediah. Share this video with friends, family and on social media to show people that no matter where we are in life, we can always speak the truth, stay true to our values, inspire others— and be inspired.
