Major to Minor

From a story by Haley Ritchie, “Winter doc shares stories from streets”, also titled “Winter documentary on Ottawa homeless will make you shiver“, Metro Ottawa, October 24, 2016. Story about amateur filmmaker Stephen Coleman and his work interviewing and filming the homeless in winter, and how his views of his own challenges changed:

In December 2014, Coleman was stuck in the middle of a cold winter and a personal darkness when he decided to begin volunteering at Shepherds of Good Hope on Murray Street in downtown Ottawa.

“I was so down and so hurt, I couldn’t get out of bed most days. What happened is my problems started to become really small. I was trying to overcome them and I saw all this beauty and all these amazing things, but also huge challenges,” he said

Recall overcoming class-based limerence crash through volunteering with Children’s Aid in Toronto.

Get out of oneself to get better.
