“Poverty is the worst form of violence”

I continue to feel privileged to be in a position to help others; specifically the 65 homeless men and women that received basic first aid items, food and clothing this past week. I recently read that…”the time is always right to do what is right…” and I’m finding that opportunity to be ever expanding. The most needed things continue to be OTC medications for infections and trauma, non-perishable foods, adult clothing specifically socks and t-shirts and various hygiene items.

I’m seeing first hand that “poverty is the worst form of violence (Gandhi);” as the homeless are often unprotected victims of assault, disease, starvation and nature. If I ever question what good is being done within this mission, I remember that everyone in need is someone’s son, daughter, brother or sister. I pray that if ever my loved ones are in need, that someone kneels down where they have fallen and help them back up; if only for a moment.
