As you may or may not know I was struggling so much this afternoon trying to figure out how I was going to put my ideas in to words but they just wouldn’t fit together properly. Then we are driving into downtown and it hit me like a ton of bricks! Homelessness! The words I wanted to use were humbleness and humility, who else personifies both of those things? The homeless. My second greatest passion in life is the homeless, the first being my faith. Through all of their unknowing actions are the very definition of both. At present I am without a home of my own and am staying with my mom and grandma, but if we didn’t have them we too would be on the streets. All of us are just a sharp left from being on the streets. We volunteered for a program called Inn From The Cold through our church and met a lot of wonderful people. Through our volunteering one thing that stuck out with most all of them was that they just wanted someone to talk to, not someone to talk at them. I read an article that stated that 97% of the homeless people in a major city were mentally ill and 91% of them were undiagnosed. I know the common stigma of the homeless is that they are drunks, junkies, or bums, but that is not the case! Sure with some of them it is but every group has a few rotten apples that make the rest look bad. They are all human beings who had mothers and fathers who loved them. Please the next time you see a homeless person just offer them a smile a kind hello! Tomorrows installment will be on Inn From The Cold. God bless you have a wonderful night!
