Thank you, Kind sir, ( I say Sir. If you are a Ma'am, I do apologize)
I have not helped out with the homeless quite as much as you, but over the years I have talked to quite a few. For various reasons. Some asking for
change, some asking for food, Some just wanting to talk, Some waiting at a bus stop. Some for legal reasons and some for illegal reasons..... All
kinds of reasons, good or bad.
But that has only showed me, Homeless people are not homeless people. They are people who have lost their way. For what ever reason, they wound up on
the street, in need of help. It could truly happen to any of us, at any time.
I see so many, look at a homeless person. They get scared, they get confused, they get grossed out.... But why? They are not wild animals. They are no
more dangerous than your coworkers or your family.
In fact, I bet you that you are more likely to be harmed by a close family member or friend, than by a homeless person.
So, stop being afraid. They are just people.
And if you think about it, all people on earth are related... Maybe very distantly, but it is true that the whole of the human species, is one giant
So, think about your mom or dad, your brother or sister. What if they were homeless? Would you not want to help them?
Well, your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and cousins are out there. HELP!!!
