Mark , Laetitia Fernando and Rushana came to lunch today friday 19 october. I had met Mark a long time back and today he was with fernando . Just because mark is different i have to admit I was worried a little but off we went. Mark is on a disability grant and unable to handle money. His sister with her kids helps him but mark still prefers to sleep on the street. Having a speech defect and problems with muscular coordination and being on the street. It left me with no words.
It was clear Mark would not see a social worker, but it seemed to me Mark has all his faculties but sometimes its so much physical mannerisms and speech defects how we define each other.
Fernanado has enough problems of his own but maintains a unconditional acceptance of mark in a way which, together with his homlessness and other difficulties few would be prepared to give Mark the tme of day
