Are they Homeless or are We HeartLESS!!
Well Time does heal all wounds I should say....
Life is about choices, Each choice we make brings a different outcome and if you aren't ready for the life altering events that are to follow then be more cautious of the decisions we make.
I remeber driving, hearing this CD that I hadn't listened to for like a year or so, and for the first time I heard the word to this song I really liked. I mean this was the first time I really listened to what the song was saying, NOt what I was making the song to be.
It impacted me in such a way that i changed my perpection on people and their life story. Each person has a story, a mystery that ONly they know.
WHen you see a HOmeless person standing on the street with their eyes wide open, their hands withered holding a sign, Dirt plied up on thier face and sadness in their eyes. what is our first reaction? They just want the money for booze or something to that affect, But what if they are really homeless and that was there only option, or better yet, what if that person was getting food for their family? What was it like to be THem, to walk in their shoes , to mourn the memories that tore their mind to pieces. Would I give a day to walk their life? Probally not. SHould I consider it? yes.
I know one question that I should consider is what are the possiblities that could of altered their life, and how would I handle that same situation. Well the song talked about thoses issues that I had never thought about. I think I would give a day to just Experience how that life would be , just to change my perception on LIFE..... Their LIFE , their WORLD as they know it. We all owe it these people, because we don't fully know their story , we only know the story we give them ANd that isn't fair. WEll its so funny how one little song can change you as person. It doesnt mean that I'm changed or would give them my last dollar but Next time, I tell you this, I will CONSIDER it....
