I am not here to preach or to stand on any moral high-ground, but I will share this:
We are all spoiled, thoughtless and oblivious. Just Say’n.
I have had the oddest dilemma lately since I have moved to the big city. I do not know how to react-respond-what to do or what not to do, when I am confronted by all the homeless people on EVERY steeet Corner. I get the double whammy of feeling bad. I am in a warm car heading to work or home, wearing a chefs jacket. I believe the homeless and the hungry look at me and think, “What an asshole! He is warm, has a job and works with food, al the time.” That is what I believe they are thinking when they look at me sitting in my car, not trying to make eye contact. I know that’s shitty but I admit it. What am I to do? I’m not going to fake a phone call or act like I’m texting somebody, like a lot of people I have witnessed.
A good friend just shared this video with me. I think it should be passed around. It’s a message taken to heart. I know for a fact, I will never be this guy. But that does not mean that I can’t do something.
I do know this, if I have something or anything to give, I probably will offer it.
What would be the worst thing that can happen? I’m out a buck or five? That’s pretty petty from a guy that is going home from work that tastes food for a living.
