Folks, we are all in this together. I am talking about the game called life. We can help each other, or have the mindset of letting others suffer. We can think that our help will be the domino effect that will change this world. Or we can think that “no one helped me, why should I give a helping hand?”. I hate to break it to you, but no one does anything on their own. No matter how much you want to believe that, it’s impossible.
There are some people who think that those who are homeless, choose to be homeless. They have this arrogant attitude that all homeless people want free food , clothes, and money for nothing in exchange. I do not care why the homeless are homeless, but no one chooses to live in the elements for free stuff. Some are homeless due to drugs,mental illness, or the economy (loss of jobs).
I feel it’s our duty to help feed them and clothe them. No matter how hard you have it, the homeless have it worse. It does not cost much to have a person bottled water, sandwiches, snack bars, fruits, boiled eggs, left overs from your fridge, and so on… I challenge you to stop thinking about yourself, and to help a homeless person each and everyday for the rest of your life. How difficult is it to roll down your window,smile hand over some food and make someones day better? Some people think this is enabling the homeless by letting them eat or be warm from the elements. Once you fall into the homeless system, it’s very difficult to get out of it. You need an address to get a job.
I say to you, challenge yourself to help feed and clothe the homeless. Challenge others to do the same. Make it contagious. We go to a home, to a family, to a sofa with a T.V. The homeless have nothing. We have a toilet , they have the outdoors and wild animals that can be dangerous.
So please, change yourself and others will do the same. We are all in this together.
