There will be no Crowdfunding for 27 year old Lindsay McCollum and Eddie Tennessee Tate…the two tasting and feeling the Fire from the muzzle of a deadly weapon.
Plumes of indifference…ridicule…seeps up from

these three beautiful HOUSELESS Souls whose lives were Lost?
WHERE IS THE RED CROSS!?!
Huddle together in makeshift warehouses…of tiny homes/box shelters/tents…are consumed in a holocaust of indifference

Terrible injuries and painful experiences a permanent part of the canvas and yet, containing all the possibilities life had in store for them. Yes they’re… artists. life as Art and Art as Life.
And The Ghost Ship still lingers after smoldering timbers have dimmed.
