Such a touchy subject.
What do you think of when you see a homeless person?
I wonder if they're really homeless?
Ew, they look really dirty and gross.
Why don't they just go and get a job?
Homeless people are so lazy.
Do they really mean it when they say 'God bless you'?
I've thought some of those things, I admit it.
Honestly, I don't give as much money to the homeless as I should.
I do have those questions always seeming to nag my thoughts,
I'll be honest with you.
BUT I will tell you about the times that I would go out with my
mom and hand out money to homeless people downtown.
We went around the circle downtown and I ran around and handed
out $20 bills to the homeless people sitting on the side of the
road. It was so freeing.
It felt good to help others in such a way that others didn't.
I mean, admit it, 99% of people don't give the people on the
side of the road money. Yeah, I worried.
I worried they wouldn't use the money in a proper way but
that didn't matter. I had given it to them and it was theirs to do
with what they wanted.
Now, if you want to help out the homeless but don't have the
guts to give it to a random guy (who may or may not actually be homeless)
which, trust me, it's hard to do!
Then give to a homeless shelter or
volunteer your time there!

Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
