Walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a Mile in My Shoes by Tom CollinsThis is the inspiring boots-and-all story of a Queensland bush pioneer who flourished against all the odds.
Tom Collins was born in 1912 and by the age of five he had his first job as a horse-tailer for his fathers itinerant draught-horse team. As a teenager he was paralysed for years after a horse-riding accident but recovered to become an axeman, a banana-grower, a Harley-Davidson rider, a dunny-can carter, a grader-driver, a dairy worker, a barber and the proud owner of a caravan beauty salon in Central Queensland.
From brigalow ring-bark and sideshow boxer in the Great Depression to ladies hairdresser, maker of fairy floss and toffee apples, auctioneer, country real estate developer and racehorse breeder, Tom Collins was by instinct an entrepreneurial go-getter and a restless, nomadic dreamer. He fought his way of the the grinding poverty of his childhood and became the very symbol of a Queensland self-made man.

Walk a Mile in My Shoes
If I could be you, if you could be me For just one hour, if we could find a way To get inside each other's mind If you could see you through my eyes Instead your own ego I believe you'd be I believe you'd be surprised to see That you've been blind. Walk a mile in my shoes just walk a mile in my shoes Before you abuse, criticize and accuse Then walk a mile in my shoes. Now if we spend the day Throwin' stones at one another 'Cause I don't think, 'cause I don't think Or wear my hair the same way you do Well, I may be common people But I'm your brother And when you strike out You're tryin' to hurt me It's hurtin' you, Lord how mercy. Now there are people on reservations And out in the ghetto And brother there, but, for the grace of God Go you and I, If I only had wings of a little angel Don't you know, I'd fly To the top of a mountain And then I'd cry, cry, cry. Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 's with sound. Until Now!

There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men's sexualized violence against women. It's critical to open communication about sexualized violence. While hidden away, sexualized violence is immune to cure. Unfortunately, it's difficult to get people talking.
