I noticed the same thing as Howard. The article was good. Too bad it
couldn't be accompanied by a real picture of a homeless person. How does
seeing only "beautiful" people in magazines, on television, in the
movies, and even in the Deseret News warp our sense of reality? The Deseret
News needs to step it up and begin depicting real people.
@howard thats what you get from this article? must be nice in your world.
Funny staged photo...A clean knit cap and a clean but tattered coat
on a young woman with make up, nice hair, and designer jeans doesn't
exactly portray the plight of the homeless.
@4601well considering most homeless people are not sick and you are
probably not a doctor I am not sure you would be "cruing" anything,
however, giving to help assit those that need it the most may help end their
homelessness, but feel free to tell yourself what ever helps you sleep at night.
We could hire them to be custodians and security guards at the mall.
Helping in its many meanings, curing or subsidizing?
My parents and my Church always taught me it wasn't my place or my job to
decide who needs help and who doesn't. My job is to respond when I see a
need. It makes the decision whether to help or not REALLY easy. I like easy.
My wife and I give to the homeless as often as we can. I know much of the money
is probably wasted on booze or drugs but homeless is homeless and people ought
to have hope. It is really hard to have any hope if you are hungry or cold or
sick. Every city ought to invest in shelters and donate food and clothing and
medicine. It is hard to reconcile any sort of Christian belief without serving
those who have nothing.
Matthew, Ch. 25: 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I
say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
