The newspaper will be managed, and 75 percent of the content written, by people who have experienced homelessness in the past or are still surviving on the street. Just like any other newspaper, there will be feature stories, reporting, opinion columns, artwork and classifieds. For people who are suffering the indignities of homelessness — fighting rats, lack of food, the weather, the inability to deal with real health issues, including mental illness and drug addiction — this is their time, not to "shine" but simply to tell their stories. We, the organizers, supporters allies and journalists, have been doing all the talking; it is time for them to talk back to us. It's time for us to be the "students." Let us humble ourselves and hear what they have to say, shall we?
