A Friend's Post

Please check it out. Mark is someone I look up to. I think the reasons are obvious.

Link to Mark's article for Huffingtonpost:

An exceedingly well-written article on a topic of utmost importance.

Reeny's Ramblin' said...

Excellent article.

I knew quite a few street kids in my younger years, some of which I still know, who were able to pull themselves out of it (which is an incredibly hard task). Most of them will tell you, panhandling aside, the one thing that money won't replace is having someone recognize you as being a fellow human being. Give them visability. If you don't have money to give or simply don't want to, the very least you can do is respond to them. Make eye contact...

The fact is that most of us are only two steps away. I am not a religious person but the golden rule goes far in this life.

Thanks for sharing my friend. Now I have a new blog to read!

He's a better person than I am. Of course there aren't too many homeless here in suburbia - they are usually downtown and I rarely walk around down there although I have visions of doing this when I sell my house and get a condo down there.

Thanks, Denny. I thought so, too!

I agree with you, Reeny. There but for the grace of God, right? You'll dig Mark's blog. He's quite a writer and a all-around great guy.

Jeannie, he's a better person than me too. For sure.

I could be Chris. We each could be. Those who are homeless are someone's child, sibling, parent. Reach out a hand.

As usual, you are right. Have a great weekend, buddy.
