As this world we live in continues to sicken and sadden a lot of us, especially at the behest of governmental policy, this made me smile a little;
India's Supreme Court has ordered states to provide adequate night shelters for the homeless during the coming winter.
"You should not allow even a single person to die this winter from the freezing cold," the judges said.
I think it is absolutely wonderful that Indian lawmakers have taken this initiative and see their fellow human beings as..well, fellow human beings,
removed from any superficial titles, statuses and the like that retard our ability to co-exist with compassion.
I hope this sets a world wide precedent for similar nations although, my optimism can only be stretched so far. It is however, of some small comfort
to know there are people in positions of power who are compassionate enough to realise that people are people and in this day and age; nobody should
be left in the cold to die.
My favorite quote, from the judges themselves; "You should not allow even a single person to die this winter from the freezing cold"
