Homeless

My girlfriend works with an organization that gets the homeless off the streets when the temperatures are below freezing. I volunteer for that same organization once a month. It’s all I can do, but today was one of those days, and let me tell you, it’s difficult to persuade people who are in some way ill, usually with schizophrenia, to come inside, even in this weather. It leaves you feeling sad and useless. Of course we did bring in many, but it’s the ones that will not come in, the ones that need help, needed help a long time ago and aren’t getting it, that really bother me.

One day someone could be saying “it’s too late for him” about me too.

It’s cold tonight on the East Coast. Please help your homeless.

Do what you can, and then do more.
