    Wishing I Could Do More To Help

    When me and my mom went out and a homeless person walked up to ask for change, my mom would give a dollar or two. And I would give $5 or any amount I could find. I would ask her "Why don't you give them more?" and she said that we can't just give everything away to homeless...

    Hobo.

    The Man On The Side Of The Road

    This email is written in sorrow and tears as I again plead for the very lives of hurting people everywhere. I had the misfortune a few minutes ago of viewing the body of a probable murder victim; I say probably because the gentleman's body was wrapped in a tarp except for the...

    Grand Central Winter

    I've noticed that many people who haven't experienced homelessness tend to have quite negative attitudes about homeless people. This deeply saddens me. But as I read reviews of the book, Grand Central Winter, by Lee Stringer, I was encouraged. I read the book myself a few years...

    Still In My Prayers

    Over the years, I have had many encounters with homeless people. I have talked with them, fed them, prayed with them, covered one as he slept, encouraged them with greeting cards, treated them like the valuable people they are, and stood up for them to hard-hearted folks who...

    Among Shadows

    It was the dark of night; the way we expect a typical story of this genre to start out. The young boy trekked across the paved streets, as the bitter cold began to engulf him. He wore nothing but rags - a tattered jacket, ripped jeans, worn black boots and gloves, which had...

    Barriers

    Years ago I heard the term, "barriers to employment" and realized that many of those barriers were present in my life. I was fortunate enough to receive lots of support to get beyond those issues. Now it's my brother's turn. Some of his barriers include not having a GED, lack of...
