Truett Seminary student joins the homeless to tell their story in new documentary
Truett Seminary student Antwone Taulton wanted to aid the homeless, but recognized that he didn’t know what it was like to be in their shoes. So he joined them.
Taulton spent several weeks living on the streets of Oklahoma City to learn the stories of some of the homeless there. He has now told their stories in a new documentary, “A Day in Our Shoes.” DVDs of the film are for sale on the official website, with proceeds going to aid homeless people in finding permanent housing, employment and transportation.
“They’re good people, they’re kindhearted people, but you can’t help all of them and not all of them want to be helped,” Taulton told the Oklahoma Gazette. “Some of them have adapted to this way of life. That comes from being out here so long and the mental abuse they have to go through. If you catch them at the beginning stages, you can get them out of here.”
Sic ’em, Antwone!
