Here died a homeless person
Everyone deserves respect, right? No matter where you come from, how much money you have, whether you live in a house or on the street - you are a person. Ian Brennan (a music producer from the San Fran Bay Area) feels that way as well. He has gone out of his way to befriend homeless individuals and has found that people in the homeless community do not receive the due respect they deserve when they pass away. He's proposing that the city post plaques in honor of those that have died on the streets. It's a pretty controversial idea! Many in the city don't want a reminder that in the exact spot their standing, an individual died. Brennan argues that it raises awareness and "humanizes" the face of homelessness.
