Tonight I was struck by a news article that brought me to tears.
It was about opportunities for assistance to people in need...given by people in the community.
The statement that hit home was, "A lot of times people who have not used social services are embarrassed, even if their situation wasn't of their own making."
Do you have any idea how many people you know are a paycheck away from homelessness?
Do you have any idea how many "friends" you have here on Facebook are going hungry tonight?
Do you have any idea the brave front some of your family, friends, or co-workers are putting on when they are petrified of losing everything in a blink of an eye?
Do you have any idea how many of your acquintences here couldn't give you a dollar because they don't have one and yet have babies to feed?
If you know of someone looking for a job, help them to network, please.
If you know of someone needing a meal, cook them one, please.
If you know of someone who could just use a hug...open your arms.
