In the blog, From City Dump to Saint, (see Saturday, November 3, 2007) one reader finds a call to action. R.S. said ... "It's comforting and scary to even contemplate such spirituality. It's comforting from the standpoint that even I, in my poverty, can get closer to Jesus Christ. It's scary in that--does this mean I'm accountable? It sure does."
Lastly, Gufbal1981's reaction to Homeless Child, (see Monday, November 5, 2007). "This is a deep poem. It's an unfortunate truth that this person sees exactly how the majority of society views him/her. It's a shame that society won't even try to imagine what it's like to be in that persons shoes! What it's like to not have food every single day...to feel what it's like to have your body go into starvation mode...to just be outside on a cold night with no shelter or blanket, and relying on body heat for warmth. It's unimaginable for most that have all the comforts of life. If this person could only see the few that have mercy and compassion for those less fortunate, maybe he/she would be able to rise from the ashes and know that there will be help."
