I am 69 years old and I am originally from Nova Scotia. I moved here with my parents 50 years ago because the mines closed back home. I was first homeless with my parents in Nova Scotia when I was 3-4 years old, so I don't remember that much about it. I have worked in both corrections and with the Army. Both were very enjoyable. I had a stroke when I was 59 years old, but I still try to persevere and do not think that anything is hard in life. I would be happy if I had people around that were close to me.
