The Homeless

The weather has turned cold in Washington and yesterday morning walking past a local park I noticed three obviously homeless people. It was apparent by all of the blankets and large pieces of cardboard that they had been in the park all night. I am not sure I could survive even a few nights of such hardship ,and it made me grateful for my friends who have provided housing and shelter for thousands down on their luck. Sister Mary Scullion and Rob Hess have made an enormous difference in the lives of men, women and children who would be in a car or a park bench this evening. They and many others have refused to accept this national disgrace ,and I am in awe of their commitment and ability to make a real difference.
