The Road Home
Eddie Lanier struggled with alcoholism for over 40 years, until his 28th stint in rehab finally led to sobriety. Homeless and hungry, Eddie found a friend in David Wright, a passerby whose frequent donations stood out. Four years after they shared Eddie's remarkable story with StoryCorps, David persuaded Eddie to move into his home. They still live together to this day.
"The Road Home" is part of StoryCorps' first-ever half-hour animated special, Listening Is an Act of Love—encore national broadcast on February 7 on POV. Check your local listings: http://www.pbs.org/pov/storycorps/
