1000 Days - Day 4
"I don't give a shit if you're black, white, Indian... If you've got money or not. You're judged by your character."
I'm probably paraphrasing. It's something along those lines. As well as, "I'm only tellin' you that because I love you and I don't even know you."
Roger Dyjak has a goal. Eliminate homeless veterans in Detroit in 1000 days via direct action. The approach : to create stability first. To Roger it comes down to one thing... They're human beings. It doesn't matter if they're users, alcoholics, criminals. They're human beings. He believes there is a solution and he, along with an ever-growing family, is taking action.
Today a group of folks met up at Detroit Tough, the up-and-coming gym in Corktown where Roger is the head coach, to distribute donated clothing to those in need. Cars were filled and a room emptied. Multiple stops were made dropping off the wares and upon return to Tough, cars filled with clothing idled in the parking lot waiting to be unloaded. More donations for another trip out into the community.
It's only day 4. 996 to go.
