That observation is truer than I would have believed before starting on this journey. I recently heard back from someone we interviewed, and I was shocked to learn she is facing the prospect of going into a temporary women's shelter.

Often we learn more about the people we interview after the camera is turned off, as if the interview has provided a release. This was the case for all three interviews we did today in Thunder Bay's Intercity Mall: Gwen, who spoke of the way her love for her late husband eclipses all other love in her life. Rick, who sees music as his most reliable friend. And Sid, who held up two gorgeous purple stones from his own amethyst mine and said: "This is love."
