Anthony is a kind and gentle homeless man living on the streets of Boston.

September 6, 2019


– [Interviewer] Anthony,
we’re out here in Boston. You’re homeless, tell me about it. It kind of… Boston’s a… Well first I wanna say, Boston’s
a beautiful city though. – [Interviewer] I agree,
it is a beautiful city. Yeah. I mean it sucks being on
the street, but out here… But… I mean I can’t complain about the skyline, or nothing like that. – [Interviewer] It’s a
beautiful day today, too. Yeah. – [Interviewer] Well you
have a good attitude. Yeah, I try to. Best of my situation, you know. I can’t try to get stuff
to get me down, you know? – [Interviewer] Right. Where’d you sleep last night? I actually ended up sleeping
at the shelter last night. – [Interviewer] It was
raining I think, right? Yeah. – [Interviewer] If it
does rain, you outside? Yeah. – [Interviewer] How are you surviving? – [Man] Here’s some food. Oh. Just by panhandling, and looking for work. – [Interviewer] Yeah?
Yeah. – [Interviewer] And people
give food a lot, huh? Yeah. A lot of food, sometimes. – [Interviewer] Oh my gosh. I mean it’s… I can say that I can’t
go hungry, you know? – [Interviewer] Right. Yeah, it’s… I mean like I try to panhandle just for my basic stuff like hygiene, and stuff. That, and maybe getting me a pack of cigarettes from time to time, you know? – [Interviewer] What’s your future like? Hopefully working, and
getting off the streets. – [Interviewer] If you had three wishes, what would they be? One, probably to be off the street. Two, probably to end homelessness. And then three… That there’d be peace on earth, some day. – [Interviewer] Good wishes. Thank you very much for talking to me. No worries. (gentle instrumental music)

    How can he be fat like that if he can’t afford anything…… I mean if he truly was homeless shouldn’t he be thinner due to not eating as much?

    Incredible person I wish I had the chance of meeting. Here where I am, Phoenix Arizona, you rarely come across a homeless person who has ears to hear and eyes to see. Too often, they're stuck in a cycle of doing drugs, getting high or drunk, and yeah, it's just bad all-around. Read the Sperling's best places Phoenix AZ and the issue is mentioned fairly often in the reviews. There needs to be more no-nonsense people like this man who have a mission: Getting off the street and ending homelessness of others.

    they have everytime good wishes and they could do and be so much more IF people would help them!
    why not ask them for work, they mostly would join. they can learn if they dont know the job and can be a very loyal and motivated worker!
    they just need support.

    but people are not interested into really help them instead they feed them like pets.
    ok better than hungry, but that just doesnt help get out of the situation.

    We live in a world on the edge of destruction.
    A world in which revolves around money,and personal gain.without anyone thinking twice about the homeless people starving on the cold streets.
    All we seem to care about is money,and the car we drive to our corporate job everyday.
    I'm tired of it all,sometimes I just want to end my life,and be free from all the pain,and abuse in this world.
