"I finally fell asleep around midnight only to wake up at about 1.00 am, the cathedral was quiet and dark and i lay there and started to think. I was, I hate to admit, scared, disoriented and cold. Because i was tired and cold, I had a little cry and got thinking what life would be like for any person and especially parent to be on the streets.I have never thought of the homeless in this way or given any serious thought to what it would be like to sleep rough. You have opened my eyes"
