I have asked one of our participants who is on the steering committee to sum up what the project means to him. He has experience of prison and homelessness, and he said:
“The memorial project gives everyone involved, especially those who have been homeless, the opportunity to express their grief and loss. It also gives others who may not have had the same experience some enlightenment as to the lives of those they see in doorways every day. It will ultimately serve as a vehicle for education and understanding”.
