[qute] Former rough sleeper Mark Johnson says it really can happen to any one of us: "We're all prone to that - you know all of us - a breakdown in a relationship, or some sort of trauma or a death or a tragic event - we're all there, much closer than we care to realise." He remembers hearing a very similar view from a city hedge fund manager: "He said in a very quiet conversation we had: 'Do you know what, I know that I'm only ever a couple of bad decisions away from being on the street myself,' and I thought that was a really good insight into being in this world because everyone is." [/quote] Having been evicted following my councils' advice, this still chills me to the bone. My family and me spent a year and six days in B&B because I did exactly what they told me to do! If it wasn't for Shelter, i don't know or want to know what would have happened to us.
