Almost forgotten now and definitely invisible, two (yes not one but TWO) Big Issue sellers were stabbed to death at 6pm (yes 6pm not 6AM) in Birmingham in front of high street and high public attendance shops of Sainsburys and Boots, in front of everyone, in front of CCTV, in front of passers-by, where everyone turned a blind eye because they were not worthy, invisible to all.
Gone now from a life on the fringe of society, poverty, homelessness and other addictions.
I leave you their names, because they had one, they were people like you and I. Who knows which one of us will become a Big Issue seller on a street next to you... It is not a profession one chooses to have.

RIP at last.
