Jon Bon Jovi visits Nasvhille homeless centre + Blog from the Tampa protest

Here's an article about Jon's visit to the Oasis Center for homeless teens in Nashville:
Rock star Jon Bon Jovi traded thousands of cheering fans Wednesday night for a quiet circle with a few kids Thursday afternoon.

The singer visited the Oasis Center, Nashville's only shelter for homeless teens, as part of his effort to understand what he calls "the new face of homelessness in America."

"The Oasis Center is really a beacon to youth," Bon Jovi said. "Having service providers at the same place that they can get a hot meal, a nap and a shower, it's a very welcoming place."

Bon Jovi spent about an hour with some of the Oasis kids. He sat in a circle with them, did yoga just as they do to start off a session, then listened to kids talk about what made them homeless and what could help them escape their condition.

I also came across the blog of a student journalist who covered the Westboro Baptist Church's protest at Bon Jovi's Tampa concert. You can read about it at this link.
