2.8.3 :: mark horvath (remix)

mark horvath

due to the continual overwhelming popularity of our interview with Mark Horvath (which was originally published in two episodes) we’re re-releasing the interview with Mark in it’s entirety in one complete episode.

Mark Horvath is a homeless advocate whose using twitter and other social media to increase awareness about the growing issue of homelessness here in America. not only does Mark see these issues daily on the streets, he’s also lived them himself.

Mark admits that some of the stories he shares are offensive — but he hopes they make the viewers mad enough they’ll get up and do something.

From invisiblepeople.tv ::

On the street I saw a small girl cold and shivering in a thin dress, with little hope of a decent meal. I became angry and said to God; “Why did you permit this? Why don’t you do something about it?” For a while God said nothing. That night he replied, quite suddenly:

“I certainly did something about it. I made you.”

I once heard a story about a homeless man on Hollywood Blvd who really thought he was invisible. But one day a kid handed the man a Christian pamphlet. The homeless guy was shocked and amazed, “what! You can see me? How can you see me? I’m invisible!”

It isn’t hard to comprehend this man’s slow spiral into invisibility. Once on the street, people started to walk past him, ignoring him as if he didn’t exist — much like they do a piece of trash on the sidewalk. It’s not that people are bad, but if we make eye contact, or engage in conversation, then we have to admit they exist and that we might have a basic human need to care. But it’s so much easier to simply close our eyes and shield our hearts to their existence.

I not only feel their pain, I truly know their pain. I lived their pain. You’d never know it now but I was a homeless person. Fourteen years ago, I lived on Hollywood Blvd. But today, I find myself looking away, ignoring the faces, avoiding their eyes — and I’m ashamed when I realize I’m doing it. But I really can feel their pain, and it is almost unbearable, but it’s just under the surface of my professional exterior.
