Faces of ACE – Marcos

“My wife called me and she said I want you to sit down. She told me that my mom and my brother and nephew were in the house during the storm in Puerto Rico. The house collapsed and they all died. I lost everything. I wanted to run, but I couldn’t. I have responsibility now, I have rent to pay, I have a job. I used to be in the streets, sleeping by the train tracks. I’m proud to have been working for 5 years now. I worked too hard to get here.”
