StoryCorps

The Road Home

80,758 views 4 months ago
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.

StoryCorps' new book, Ties that Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude from the First Ten Years of StoryCorps, is on-sale now! Buy it today: http://www.amazon.com/Ties-...
