NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP......

I was in this building taking individual photographs of a group of people that volunteered there. When I arrived in the room set up for the work this man was lying on the floor, passed out. The person that escorted me to the room knew him. Apparently he is a "regular". She told him he would have to leave and he stumbled out of the room. I took photographs of several people and when there was a break I went out into the hallway and saw that he hadn't gotten very far. It is such a sad thing that alcohol can grip someone so strongly that without lots of support many die. I didn't take the photo of him for display purposes. I was just struck by the image and took the shot. I don't think anyone can identify him. If someone does, please let me know.
