Kennedy was first to the top. She whispered to Yacinta, "look over there." She pointed to a man sleeping on the highest, narrow bench of the bleachers. His pants and shirt were faded, worn and too large for his thin frame. One big toe stuck out of
a huge hole in his sock. His scraped up shoes
sat a few feet away.
