smile for doorsteps – they’re home to some people.
If you’ve a smile on your face today, may it be due to do something you did for the thousands of people who lost their homes and are living in fear and destitution. Sleeping in back alleys and on corporate doorsteps. I often wonder what Earth would be like without the ignorant walking amongst us. It disgusts me to the bone.
I don’t understand how anyone can step over or walk around a person who can’t get up. Yes, many are drug users, but what else do they have to do to escape their circumstances? We need an exodus of people to help the homeless. It is not right. There are many organisations needing help right now. Can you not spare an hour a week? Or what about animal rescue centres who need bedding and blankets for the many unwanted pets handed over as though they are toys at this time of year. It is not always about digging deep for coins, time is what they need too. The most caring people I know are not on a computer all day, they are out there, right now, giving their time freely. Not for self promotion or glory seeking, but because they care and want better things for the vulnerable.
I do believe charity starts at home and there are people sleeping rough within yards of where we sit warm right now.
