73. Such an important point! I *hate* the term "the homeless* -- taking away our humanity.
Edited on Sat Apr-05-08 01:30 PM by bobbolink
A pastor I met uses a term I really like... he calls us "People made poor and homeless."

I really like that!

Legal assistance is one of the HUGE problems for all poor people, and crushingly so for homeless people! "With liberty and justice for all.." What happened to that, anyway???

I appreciate your assistance to people in need...and, I'd very much welcome a thread from you on this!

And thank you to your daughter for her humanity and sensitivity. She's obviously being raised very well. :hi:
