Our video's message: We are in no way saying that this is the finish line for Jim. This is just the first corner turned. We'd be crazy to think a makeover video would undo the internal damage of decades of poverty and alcoholism. Progress is rarely a straight line forward, especially when it comes to addiction. But it could be the start of something, and we're working hard to help walk him down this new path. For everyone else, we hope to give a hesitation to those that we tune out, a reminder of the potential that even our most down and out citizens will always carry with them.
