“Sometimes it’s easy to walk by because we know we can’t change someone’s whole life in a single afternoon. But what we fail to realize it that simple kindness can go a long way toward encouraging someone who is stuck in a desolate place.”
― Mike Yankoski

When I lived in Vancouver I was struck by the number of homeless persons in that city. I knew that every one of them had their individual stories. Stories I would never know.

I wanted to help, but felt I wasn’t in a position to do much except put some money in the cap, bowl, or basket.

I remember there was a woman, in a wheelchair, who used to go out on the streets in the night and pass out homemade sandwiches to the street people. How I admired her and felt a little ashamed that I didn’t have her courage and inspiration.

I don’t know what homelessness feels like but I do know how a kind gesture from someone can make a huge difference if you are lost and alone.

Today’s podcast speaks to that gesture, I hope you enjoy the story,,

“The biggest misconception about the homeless is that they got themselves in the mess – let them get themselves out. Many people think they are simply lazy. I urge those to make a friend at a local mission and find out how wrong these assumptions are.”
