    I kept looking at those men lying on the streets and kept asking myself, "Where do they all come from? Where are their families? Their wives? Children? Sisters? Brothers? How did so many men wind up like this? I could see my grandfather and my father in their eyes. Would I ever turn my back on my father or brother so that his life would turn out like that? I believe this documentary did its job very, very well. 7 years 4 months ago
