More street observations

If you went missing who would know?
Who would care enough to find you?
And if there was a problem, how long would they care?

Chatting to a man today, was obviously a bit of a loner.
A few years ago was working.
One night he was beat up.
Spent two weeks in a coma and thirteen weeks in hospital.
Thirteen weeks without work (actually more), and the bills keep coming in.
With no family or support structures he found himself on the street.

How important is community?
