Giving from the Heart Always Works

It is truly heartbreaking to see so many people who are homeless.
Most people will just walk by and few will stop to offer a kind word or any help of any kind. When I talk with others about the homeless situation, most people will tell me that most of them are drug addicts or dealing with mental illness. While some of the homeless are suffering from an addiction or mental illness, many may have become homeless due to an illness or sudden job loss.
Today, I brought a bag with a toque (warm knit hat), pair of socks, bottle of water and a mini first aid kid with me. I saw someone sleeping outside of the Tim Horton's coffee shop, so I left the bag beside him.
I hope to never have to experience the pain of homelessness. If we can all show some compassion and kindness for those who are clearly suffering, we will be making the world a better place.
