Larry, from what I hear, right after this happened there were people from all over who wanted to help this man, again reminding us to be slow to judge anyone, as you often remind us. I thought his act was indeed a powerful demonstration of patriotism. I felt it was also powerful that he viewed his country with great pride and love, and did not have an attitude of entitlement. Let's see if the many offers for help really come through. I think they will. Thanks for the great post.
That made me cry. Someone who has every reason to think that he's living anywhere but the land of the free and the home of the brave still believes our country is worth fighting for. We have to do better for our homeless neighbors. We just have to. Until everyone has a safe, clean place to live, the home of the brave is not a real home to anyone.
How do you know? Anecdotally?
Anon 9:15, how do I know what? That folks sit in judgement of the poor? All I have to do to understand that is listen, read and observe every single day in my work and world.
So it is anecdotally.
If 100s of folks fits your definition. But beyond that, the policy of this country and this city speaks the truth of the matter.
Anon 9:15, are you serious? You could even be technically right but totally miss the point. Everything does not have to be presented in the form of a carefully tabulated study to be generally true.
