They know you see them…

homeless.jpgHas anyone ever read the signs that the homeless people hold on the side of the street?  I have, I also see the hands that hold those signs.  I’ve looked in their eyes and I’ve seen pain and humiliation.

Remember those commercials that had kids saying I want to be college dropout when I grow up, and I want to be stuck in a dead end job when I grow up and so on naming everything we don’t want to be but usually end up.  Then at the end it says, “No one grows up saying I want to be a junkie when I grow up” or something like that.  Life happens and Life doesn’t care what you’ve been through already.

Who knows what their story is and why they are standing on the road with a sign that says they are hungry?  People don’t help because they say “Oh they will just spend it on alcohol or drugs”  Hell, if I were in their place, I would.  Nothing you give me would be enough to give me a new Life with a brand new chance.  Our system is not made for people with baggage to succeed.

I know I am rambling but these are the things that I think about.  I think about the pain in the world. What can I do to ease it….
