A Creative Way To Help A Homeless Neighbor

I’m new to the Treasure Valley, so to be honest, I’m not sure how big an issue homelessness is here.  Growing up in Seattle, it was something I was exposed to.  When I lived in Denver, the reality of the harsh winter climate added a new dimension to the struggle and danger that living on the streets brought with it.

My heart has always been broken for the homeless, and though sometimes the stereotypes of what causes one to arrive in that condition do ring true, my experience has taught me that many who live on the streets are you and me, on the other side of one bad break or poor decision.

I often wonder what it would look like to get a second chance.  I know from meeting those who are homeless, that the invisibility is what often eats at their humanity and causes them to disappear into themselves.

Some musically gifted people in Germany saw a homeless man and observed that his technique for raising money wasn’t working.  They decided to engage…and give him some hope.

I love this.

We can be the change if we give a little time and choose to connect.
