GRACE UNDER FIRE ON BTC
Our show "GRACE UNDER FIRE" tells the story of how making a wrong turn led Grace McKinnon to intervene in a confrontation between a homeless man with mental health issues and police. The confrontation was escalating and her quick action of shielding the homeless man as she talked him and the police down saved a life in the process. Grace was homeless herself once for most of her childhood and has had to overcome impossible conditions to survive and thrive in life. Grace shares her fascinating life story as well as her observations about what we need to do as a society to shift the plight of the homeless and those struggling with mental health issues and addiction. We are the heroes and sheros we've been waiting for people and Grace shows us how to be extraordinary in our every day lives. Speak up and speak out when you see injustice.
