“The Mole People”

This week Bill and I read the book “The Mole People” by Jennifer Toth. It was very interesting! It is a reporter’s story as she investigated the underground homeless – the people who live in subway and Amtrak tunnels. Some of the tunnels are 7 -8 stories underground. It was a very eye opening book – something we had never thought about before. She tells the life stories of several of the people she met underground. She went underground everyday for several months to see how these people live and try to understand why they are there. Most of the people who live underground are drug addicts or have diseases, like AIDS.

    I would like to read that book. One of the things that I have learned from my volunteer work with the homeless is that homelessness is usually a symptom of other problems such as addiction, disease and mental illness. I think that is why I feel compeled to continue my involvement with the IHN misnistry. As much as we like to think it is, we are not playing on a “level field”. I’m sure this is one of the reasons you have chosen to be a Social Worker. I’m also sure that you are going to be a great one!
