In the past I've been morally guilty of snapping homeless people from a distance and without their permission, but yesterday, after a great little conversation with that fellow on the left, I asked -- just as an afterthought if I could take his picture. He enthusiastically said YES, so I did... Not far up the street I ran into the sick and frail man on the right, and asked him the same question -- he also enthusiastically said yes... --Now, how a person living with the horror of A.I.D.S. can be enthusiastic about anything is beyond me, but it is an experience that I will never forget.
Since these encounters and three more that day, I have been counting my blessings -- realizing that I could have, and still can very easily end up in a similiar situation. My blogging buddies, Plug1 and Plug2 over at www.whatimseeing.com actually do something about their concern by helping out to feed the homeless at St. Anthony's Dining Room, so perhaps I should get off my soapbox and get over there and see if I can help out.
