    It is too easy to stereotype people -- if you are wealthy you are obviously and achiever, if you are homeless, you probably deserve to be. Life is difficult and some of us have better luck than others, I know that my family has been blessed greatly this year, even though according to statistics, we should be on food stamps, but we're not.

    There is so much power in the pleading -- Give me another chance. Isn't that what we all need - at least once in our lives. This is truly a story for Christmas, and one we can all hope will play out time and time again. And I hope that I can be counted as one who contributes at least once in a while to the welfare of others.

    Many, many truths flowed from this article. Thank you Emiley for writing it. Avoiding the use of drugs and alcohol to "make it" through each day is a MAJOR victory for the people highlighted. I am reminded that our Savior told us that "the poor will always be among us". My wish is many blessings to those who create and run these shelters, to those who offer hope to folks who need to use them, and to anyone who reads this article and chooses to regularly donate.

    Merry Christmas to Ms. Bond and the Williams'. I hope 2013 is full of blessings; whatever you still stand in need of. We're all God's children; let's be good to one another. God Bless.
