When it comes to people that are faced with struggles, they are all but forgotten. Fortunately, there are people like Doug Levitt that are looking to provide a voice for them. Doug Levitt is a singer songwriter who is also writing a book about the struggling in America. Often times, people look at those that are struggling as if they are invisible at best. However, the people that are struggling are also human and they have the right to be heard. Fortunately, Doug Levitt has decided to travel by Greyhound for 10 years so that he can get the stories that are traveling.
Levitt has also decided to gather pictures of families so that he could put a face to each story. Each of the stories that one would read in his book are going to be filled with a lot of heartache as well as inspiration. For one thing, it could let people know that no matter how far one falls, it is never too late. He could climb back up and get his life back on track. It also lets other struggling people know that they are not alone. When they read these stories, they may get the motivation they need to keep pushing forward.
Doug Levitt also offers free concerts so that people could listen some of his greatest hits. He also has songs that he has written based on the stories that he has collected during his travels on the Greyhound Bus. His project for The Greyhound Diaries is an ongoing project which he models after the WPA initiatives back in the 1930s. His intentions are similar to the initiatives which is to show a fuller picture of America which include the people that are struggling to get by.
